4th Global Forum on

Anti-Corruption Compliance in High Risk Markets

Monday, July 22 to Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Washington Marriott Hotel, Washington, DC

Anti-Corruption Investigations and Prosecutions are Increasing Globally. Can Your Anti-Corruption Compliance Program Sustain the Heat of a Government Investigation? Learn What it Takes to Ensure Your Operations in High Risk Markets are Compliant with Relevant Anti-Corruption Laws.

What constitutes a high risk partner in Brazil versus India? What does the investigative process look like in Thailand as opposed to Russia? How do you train employees to identify and report red flags in Uganda versus Indonesia? These questions and others require multinational corporations to rethink anti-corruption compliance and adopt a more local approach to effectively address corruption risks.

Raise your global anti-corruption IQ - It is critical to have an effective and comprehensive anti-corruption compliance program in high risk markets that will demonstrate to your employees and government agencies that anti-corruption is an important corporate objective for your high risk markets and one that is taken seriously.

American Conference Institute’s 4th Global Forum on Anti-Corruption in High Risk Markets is designed to provide practical, country-specific guidance on monitoring third party anti-corruption compliance, conducting effective risk assessments, what pending legislation in BRIC countries could affect your global operations, understanding the complexities of data privacy protections, and keeping employees in high risk markets engaged in your anti-corruption compliance program.
