Navigating the Waters of Anti-Corruption Compliance in China
China is a country with great economic opportunities but significant compliance risks. Did you know that Chinese anti-corruption enforcement against multi-national companies often focuses on improper payments and gifts to Chinese government officials? In the past year, Chinese authorities initiated aggressive corruption enforcement actions against multinational companies, increasing the risk to global companies operating in China. It’s essential that companies reinforce their ethics and anti-corruption compliance programs in China to minimize the risk of enforcement from China, the United States and other law enforcement authorities.
Join Michael Volkov, CEO of The Volkov Law Group, and Jimmy Lin, VP of Product Management and Corporate Development at The Network, for this complimentary webinar as they discuss current risks in China and offer practical solutions to complex issues in order to protect companies from enforcement actions for misconduct in China. Michael and Jimmy will look at how compliance practitioners must examine their anti-bribery policies, training, internal controls and third party risk programs to protect their organizations in high-risk geographies such as China. They will also discuss:
YOU WILL LEARN
- The importance of developing strong internal financial controls to prevent disbursement of funds in corrupt schemes
- The difficulty of screening and monitoring potential third party agents and distributors needed in China
- The need to carefully control the practice of gift-giving and entertaining Chinese officials from state-owned businesses
