Anti-corruption compliance and enforcement have always been a priority for most countries in Latin America. In the 2015 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) of Transparency International, Latin America was described as the region with a "serious corruption problem." The dramatic developments in Brazil arising from “Operation Carwash” has further heightened concerns for anyone seeking to do business in the region. Investigations of U.S. enforcement agencies are increasingly being joined by regulatory bodies in other countries outside the region. But within Latin America, the significance of the role of investigatory bodies in Brazil cannot be overstated. This has, in turn, led to increased regulatory activity now taking place throughout the region.
In this live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the important issues surrounding the anti-corruption landscape in Latin America. Speakers will also give highlight to the recent enforcement trends and developments.
Key topics include:
• Identifying and Mitigating Anti-Corruption Risks
• Corruption in Latin America – Recent Statistics
• The Important Developments in Brazil
• Mexico's New Anti-Corruption Framework
• Implications to the Year Ahead
• Recent Trends and Developments
