Roundtable with U.S. Treasury Under Secretary Brian Nelson

On May 9th, AMCHAM hosted an exclusive roundtable discussion with the U.S. Treasury Under Secretary Brian Nelson. This session provided a valuable opportunity for members and non-members within the banking sector to engage directly with Under Secretary Nelson on critical topics related to terrorist financing and sanctions risks in Malaysia and the region.

Under Secretary Nelson highlighted the serious consequences that financial institutions may face for non-compliance with U.S. sanctions or involvement in terrorist financing activities. Attendees gained insights into strategies to mitigate these risks and had the opportunity to share perspectives on U.S. sanctions and financial crime enforcement.

We extend our sincere appreciation to Mr. Brian Nelson and his team for their engagement and commitment to addressing these important issues with our members and guests.
