Recognizing the importance of international cooperation in the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing, the Egmont Group is striving to expand its cooperation and collaboration with partner organizations in this field. The Egmont Groups considers the expansion of the global anti-money laundering and counter financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) network as a prime goal in its Strategic Plan. Currently there are 20 international organizations that are Observers of the Egmont Group. Observers of the Egmont Group can attend Egmont Meeting, has access to Egmont Group papers, and are encouraged to contribute to the organization’s ongoing work.
