Shanghai, China (April 27, 2009) /ChinaNewswire.com/ — Nicola Bonucci, Director of Legal Affairs at the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation will be speaking on the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention: Monitoring and Future Initiatives on Day 2 of this must-attend event.
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. These difficulties are reflected in recent FCPA prosecutions. Several published cases in recent years – Siemens, Faro Technologies, AGA Medical, Lucent, Schnitzer Steel, ITT, York International, Diagnostic Products (for example) – have focused on activities in China, and many pending investigations reportedly also involve compliance issues in China.
After the tremendous success of its inaugural conference in July 2008, C5 Group and American Conference Institute are proud to announce the 2nd China Summit on Anti-Corruption. Once again, the Summit brings together an exceptional faculty of seasoned corporate ethics and compliance executives, senior attorneys, forensic accountants and government officials. They will provide a comprehensive update on the anti-bribery landscape in China, the intersection of the FCPA and local Chinese anti-bribery laws and how to implement robust anti-corruption policies to comply with Chinese laws and the FCPA.
