The Governor of Bank Indonesia, Perry Warjiyo, and Managing Director of Brunei Darussalam Central Bank (BDCB), Rokiah Badar, have agreed cooperation measures concerning Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CTF) in the payment system. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is effective from June 2021. The BI Governor emphasised that the MoU demonstrates Bank Indonesia's firm commitment to strengthening financial system integrity in response to the increasingly complex payment system challenges facing both countries. In addition, Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam have acknowledged the need for policy synergy and integration when applying AML/CTF policy.

The MoU intends to strengthen AML/CTF policy cooperation concerning the payment system in accordance with the jurisdiction of both central banks based on legal and regulatory frameworks, supervision methods and transaction reporting. The cooperation also extends to policy dialogue, data and information exchange as well as human resources capacity building.

Signing the MoU demonstrates Bank Indonesia's support for government efforts as a member of the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) and Bank Indonesia's commitment to combat money laundering and terrorism financing, while fulfilling the FATF recommendations and guidelines.
