15 July 2014
Dear Mr. Byrne,
Thank you for your letter of July 8, 2014 and your kind words.
I am aware of ACAMS and of the work it does in bringing together and increasing the knowledge of the AML community. I do appreciate the importance of broader education on our issues of mutual interest and I note that ACAMS is growing in size and therefore in reach year by year.
As you have observed, it is my intention to continue and to expand the work of previous FATF Presidents in promoting meaningful engagement with the private sector and we have a number of mechanisms at our disposal for that purpose.
I wish you and ACAMS well in your AML/CFT work.
Roger Wilkins AO
