On 23 July 2018, the G20 published a communique following the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting in Buenos Aires this month. Amongst other things, the G20:

  • welcomes progress on the Roadmap to Infrastructure as an Asset Class. The G20 endorses the Principles for the Infrastructure Project Preparation Phase which will help deliver a pipeline of well-prepared and bankable projects that are attractive to private investors by improving assessments of project rationale;
  • remains vigilant with regards to overseeing crypto-assets. Crypto-assets raise issues with respect to consumer and investor protection, market integrity, tax evasion, money laundering and terrorist financing, as they lack the key attributes of sovereign currencies; and
  • calls for the full, effective and swift implementation of FATF standards to fight terrorist financing and money laundering.
