ACI's 3rd Global Forum on Anti-Corruption in High Risk Markets
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 - Wednesday, July 18, 2012
04:00 AM GMT - 04:00 AM GMT
In the last year, anti-corruption enforcement actions have involved business activities in Mexico, China, India, Nigeria, Brazil, Russia and other markets considered high risk. At the same time, new anti-bribery laws and enforcement tools have spread across the globe promising to raise the stakes for multinationals. These developments make it clear that anti-corruption enforcement is here to stay and will affect more companies doing business in high risk markets than ever before.
Thats why American Conference Institute's 3rd Global Forum on Anti-Corruption Compliance in Emerging Markets is designed to provide practical, country-specific guidance on screening third-parties, preventing gift s and entertainment pitfalls, working with joint venture partners, conducting internal investigations and other critical anti-bribery issues.
