National Strategy for Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT)

Taking into account the findings of the Terrorism Financing National Risk Assessment (TF NRA) 2020Singapore formulated our National Strategy for Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT). The National CFT Strategy forms the blueprint that outlines Singapore’s national approach to address our TF risks and serves as the roadmap to guide the development of future action plans to effectively prevent, detect, investigate, and enforce against TF. It also enhances the coordination of actions across law enforcement agencies, policy makers, regulators and supervisors, and as appropriate, the private sector, in Singapore. 

Singapore has adopted a five-point strategy which comprises:

  1. Coordinated and Comprehensive Risk Identification;
  2. Strong Legal and Sanctions Frameworks;
  3. Robust Regulatory Regime and Risk Targeted Supervisory Framework;
  4. Decisive Law Enforcement Actions; and
  5. International Partnerships and Cooperation.

As necessary, the relevant law enforcement, policy and supervisory agencies have adopted action plans as guided by the National CFT Strategy.
