Intended to counter China’s perceived national security threats, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched its new "China Initiative," a task force that will probe China’s industrial espionage. The initiative will be implemented through significant strategies which include identifying and prioritizing Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) lawsuits that involve Chinese businesses competing with U.S. companies. A heightened scrutiny on Chinese companies by the U.S., along with other countries, is expected.
More than ever, effective anti-bribery and corruption guidelines aimed towards FCPA compliance should be developed and maintained by these Chinese businesses.
In this live Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview to help you understand the critical elements of the new initiative and its potential effects on Chinese businesses. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing a robust anti-corruption compliance program in light of the recent updates and developments surrounding the initiative.
Key topics include:
- The “China Initiative” – An Overview
- Recent Updates and Developments
- Implications on Chinese Companies
- Risks and Pitfalls
- Best Compliance Practices
