ACIs 3rd China Summit on Anti-Corruption
American Conference Institute presents its 3rd China Summit on Anti-Corruption, June 22 & 23, 2010 at the Le Royal Meridien Shanghai, China
Corruption is a serious problem in Chinas economy. Chinas leaders have recognized this problem and adopted increasingly aggressive policies to deal with it. We will give high priority to fighting corruption and encouraging integrity, said China Premier Wen Jiabao in his 2010 State of the Union-style address.
Now that China is vigorously enforcing commercial bribery laws in its private sector, foreign companies operating in China are faced with a rapidly evolving domestic anti-corruption compliance environment. At the same time, U.S. companies, and companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges, must comply with the FCPA when doing business in China. FCPA compliance is especially challenging in China, where government regulation of the economy remains rigorous and state-owned enterprises continue to dominate many sectors.
If your company is doing business in the Peoples Republic of China, you must have a robust anti-corruption compliance program and be prepared to act promptly and effectively to remedy any problems that do arise.
