The Second Counter-Terrorism Financing Summit takes place from August 8 to 11 in Bali.
The conferences is jointly organized with Australia and includes the participation of representatives from about 30 countries and international organizations.
Discussions are expected to center on how to counter the cross-border movement of terrorism. This includes finance flows and foreign terrorist fighters.
The meetings come in the wake of arrests in Batam, as police hold five people who allegedly belong to terror cell Katibah G-R. They were arrested on suspicion of having ties to Indonesian Jihadist Bahrun Naim, who is currently believed to be fighting in Syria with Islamic State.
The group’s ringleader allegedly received and channelled funds for Jihadist activities.
