10th China Anti-Corruption Compliance Summit 2017

October 26-27, 2017 · Shanghai Marriott Hotel Hongqiao, China

Duxes held the 10th China Anti-Corruption Compliance Summit 2017 on October 26-27 in Shanghai. More than 120 attendees representing major multinationals, law firms, as well as government and non-profit institutions, gathered to discuss the state of anti-corruption enforcement in China, with speakers detailing the latest regulations, and optimal compliance strategies.

The event began with presentations from representatives from UBS, Transparency International, and the British Standards Institution (BSI), sharing knowledge on gifts & entertainment, how to balance business curtesy against compliance risk, country-specific trends in anti-corruption, and the effect of the ISO 37001 global standards on combating bribery. Later, a series of panels addressed compliance from a corporate perspective, with spirited discussions from a diverse range of panelists on appropriate responses to internal and government investigations, self-reporting and cooperation with regulators, and unfair competition in corporate marketing.

The final day continued with a focus on China and global specific topics. An official from the Shanghai Municipal Administration of Industry and Commerce explained the local anti-commercial bribery enforcement environment. Speakers from compliance and legal departments noted strategies for navigating business courtesies, designing and implementing an effective compliance program, and common compliance risks in China. The summit concluded with content on the crossroads of cartels and corruption by the U.S. Department of Justice, the relationship between anti-monopoly and anti-bribery laws, and the World Bank’s anti-corruption framework.

The 10th China Anti-Corruption concluded as a success, having educated attendees on important developments in anti-corruption compliance, and facilitated discussion among a diverse group of experts in the field. The summit continued Duxes’ commitment to equipping institutions to fight corruption, within China and around the world. Special acknowledgement is due to the event partner TRACE, endorser IPBA, as well as sponsors: BSI, EPIQ, RICC & Co, Kobre & Kim, and Consilio.
