Jan. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Dozens of FCPA enforcement actions have touched BRIC countries and other emerging markets in recent years, and prosecutions involving these markets are expected to increase in the next year.  At the same time a broader international agenda to combat bribery, recently embodied by the new UK Bribery Act, coupled with more aggressive enforcement of local bribery laws particularly in BRIC countries, increase corruption risks faced by companies and individuals in emerging markets.

If your company is operating in high risk markets, you will not want to miss the 2011 Advanced Forum on FCPA Compliance in Emerging Markets. The brand new agenda will feature an even greater number of speakers from China, Russia, Brazil, India, Mexico and other key markets. Designed to provide you with country-specific FCPA guidance, you will gain comprehensive knowledge of the anti-bribery landscape in BRIC countries, firsthand insights into how to address bribery risks in these markets, and practical guidance on tailoring your anti-corruption compliance policies to the idiosyncracies of each market.  Senior corporate ethics and compliance executives, FCPA and anti-corruption attorneys and consultants from the US, UK, Brazil, Russia, India, China, Mexico, and the Middle East will share key insights on:

China

   * Identify who is a “government official”
   * Prevent gifts and hospitality pitfalls
   * Weave local law requirements into your global anti-corruption compliance program

Russia

   * Set up internal accounting controls to prevent unauthorized payments
   * Detect patterns of bribery and non-compliant behavior
   * Conduct internal investigations into questionable payments

India

   * Vet and control customs brokers, agents and intermediaries
   * Deal with requests for bribes when obtaining regulatory approvals
   * Promote anti-bribery awareness and train in-country employees and third-parties

Brazil and Mexico

   * Minimize bribery risks in customs operations
   * Develop appropriate oversight procedures for subsidiaries, branches and offices

Join us next year in Washington, DC (venue TBD), June 15-16, 2011 for the only conference of its kind designed to provide you with a country-by-country approach to anti-corruption compliance.
