Asean countries need to make a concerted effort at the regional level to combat online fraud, says Fahmi Fadzil.

The Communications and Digital Minister said that after officiating the 2023 National Anti-Scam Roadshow programme on Saturday (Feb 18), adding that this was because online fraudsters were always looking for loopholes in the laws of other countries.

Fahmi said almost every Asean member country raised the issue during the recent Asean Digital Ministers Meeting, adding that there is a need for government-to-government and police-to-police cooperation as well as a regional framework to manage data transfer.
