The Philippines has avoided further scorn from the Asia-Pacific Group on Money-Laundering following "significant compliance" in tightening their AML regulations.
The APG on its website said it removed the Philippines from “APG membership action” after the government reported that President Rodrigo Duterte signed the casino bill into law in the latest meeting in Sri Lanka.
The Financial Action Task Force has also removed the Philippines from its list of jurisdictions that it deemed “vulnerable” to money laundering, and asked the government to work with APG to further strengthen its regulations.
