Corruption is a grave social problem afflicting every society, costing the global economy an estimated 2% of annual GDP. In recent years, authorities have been more vigilant in enforcing anti-corruption laws, working in partnership with non-profit organizations and multinationals to tackle persistent corruption at every stage of the supply chain. Jurisdictions across Asia have taken a leading role, exemplified by strict anti-corruption campaigns in China and India, and closer collaboration on extradition and enforcement.
Duxes will host the 7th Anti-Corruption Compliance Asia Pacific Summit 2018 on December 6-7 in Hong Kong, with the goal of supporting companies and civil society institutions in the ongoing fight against corruption. The two-day summit will bring together corporate compliance officers, legal experts, and policymakers, to discuss anti-corruption enforcement and compliance in the Asia Pacific region. The first day of the summit will detail the regulatory environment for anti-corruption enforcement in major jurisdictions, with testimony from policymakers in the United States, Australia, South Korea, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The final day will address essential risk management and compliance practices for organizations, including insights on internal investigations, auditing, facilitation payments, and whistleblower policies.
The 7th Anti-Corruption Compliance Asia Pacific Summit 2018 furthers Duxes’ decade-long commitment to assisting companies in combating corruption, and facilitating exchange between private and public sector institutions. Professionals working in compliance, for law and consulting firms, or in related fields, are invited to attend.
