Overview:

The implementation of anti-corruption programs has become more proactive over the past years. Multinational corporations have continued to prioritize investments with strong anti-corruption initiatives. Additionally, jurisdictions have taken significant measures to improve their legislative framework against bribery by requiring businesses to follow internal policies and regulations.

Because failure to comply and counter corruption can adversely affect a company’s financial health and profitability, it is important to become updated with the latest anti-corruption trends and developments to avoid noncompliance with local and international laws.

In this LIVE Webcast, seasoned regulatory & compliance experts Gary Gao (Zhong Lun Law Firm) and Lindi Jarvis (FTI Consulting) will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent developments in the anti-corruption landscape. Speakers will also present practical tips and strategies to ensure compliance and mitigate risks.

Key topics include:

  • Trends and Developments in Anti-Corruption Enforcement
  • Legislative Framework Against Bribery
  • Risks and Challenges
  • Tips and Strategies
  • What Lies Ahead

DOJ Guidance and How to Approach the Recommendations

  • Key takeaways from the June 2020 revised guidance
  • Analyzing key performance indicators based on the revised guidance
  • Investigation complications during COVID

Compliance in the face of economic and travel related barriers caused by COVID

  • Building a culture of ethics and compliance even when resources are limited
  • Taking deliberate steps to continue to re-affirm the organization’s positive tone at the top and the importance of legal and policy compliance and ethical conduct during times of crisis. Specific examples to be discussed can include:
    • Risk assessments
    • Training & communications
    • Auditing/monitoring
    • Third party risk management
  • Using data analytics – examples that companies and compliance officers can put in their tool kit

SEGMENT 2:

Gary Gao, Partner, Head of Compliance Department

Zhong Lun Law Firm

  • Trends in overseas regulatory enforcement: (i) PRC government and authorities become more active and confident to initiate domestic or participate in international investigations related to DOJ/SFO/PNF’s anti-corruption cases. (ii) Cross-border sanction approaches become more comprehensive and full-sided compared to the traditional anti-corruption target.
  • Conflicts in PRC anti-corruption enforcement: On the one hand, the current financial difficulties make the PRC authorities more tolerant of grey zone market promotion. However, on the other hand, the authorities tend to use anti-corruption enforcement as a tool to gain income. How to dive through this dynamic status requires enterprises’ open mind and enhancement in their compliance management.
  • The worldwide spread of nationalism and the protection of national sovereignty draw thicker barriers to carry on cross-border anti-corruption investigations. But in some areas, there could be more corporation from China.
