Event Details

While bribes and corruption have been a way of life since the earliest days of international trade, the need to stay on the right side of the law has never been greater. Despite a growing global focus on anti-bribery measures, companies around the world continue to find themselves ensnarled in government enforcement actions that are designed to banish graft. Is the US imposing its version of morality and conduct on the global business community? Have cultural differences now been amplified into legal differences?
