After a turbulent and Covid-marked 2020 that has impacted national and international authorities’ enforcement efforts in different and often unexpected ways, Brazil will likely see much of those developments and activities play out in 2021. Key headliners to keep a close eye on include the impact on companies’ compliance programs as Brazil’s landmark data protection law (the Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais, or LGPD) begins to bite and M&A activity, hampered throughout much of 2020 by a less promising economic outlook, picks up pace. As very few question the importance that the country’s authorities continue their trailblazing anti-corruption work, ACI will be at the forefront of not merely making these developments known more widely but also anticipating their likely impact and meaning for Chief Compliance Officers’ work, which makes our program – as in previous years – the must-attend event of 2021.
ACI’s 2021 Brazil conference is currently being developed and will be announced in short order. As the longest-standing anti-corruption compliance conference in Brazil, this program will be, for the eleventh year straight, the ideal forum for networking, sharing experiences on risk mitigation strategies and cutting-edge compliance programs, as well as exploring the challenges of doing business in the region.
