Statement from the FTC director concerning the 8th FTC Conference

February 25th, 2020

A statement about the 8th FTC Conference’ in Bangkok on 1st and 2nd April ‘From Boiling Point to Turning Point’:

Given continued concerns about the Corona Virus (COVID-19) and associated logistical challenges it has posed in organizing our forthcoming conference, the Financial Transparency Coalition has taken the decision that we cannot proceed as planned with the 8th FTC Conference in Bangkok on the 1st and 2nd April. We would like to thank the interest and apologise for any inconvenience that this decision may cause.

Whilst we will not be holding an event on the 1st and 2nd of April, we are considering alternative options to fulfil, insofar as is possible, our event’s objectives. We are currently examining how best to bring the exciting group of people together that we intended to convene in Bangkok, including through the use of a virtual conference and augmented through regional activities. We will confirm these very soon.
