Abstract

For the past years, anti-corruption compliance and enforcement have always been a priority for most countries in Latin America. In the 2015 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) of Transparency International, Latin America was described as the region with a "serious corruption problem." This controversy has sparked a major concern for businesses, particularly to other foreign countries that are about to conduct business in the region. Nevertheless, with the continued scrutiny by foreign regulatory bodies especially from the United States that has further developed the Latin America’s anti-corruption enforcement, risks and threats are minimized and controlled.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the important issues surrounding the anti-corruption landscape in Latin America. Speakers will also give highlight to the recent enforcement trends and developments.

Key topics include:

• Identifying and Mitigating Anti-Corruption Risks
• Corruption in Latin America – Recent Statistics
• Mexico's New Anti-Corruption Framework
• Implications to the Year Ahead
• Recent Trends and Developments
