Description: China is undergoing
profound changes in its business and economic landscape. This is a paradigm
shift away from its earlier boom days. China’s economy is now unmistakably
slowing, and this raises increased risk for fraud and corruption. Due to a
confluence of factors, China has always been a leading location for
FCPA/anti-corruption matters. Now with the increasing pressures of a slowing
economy, other types of fraud, such as revenue recognition, conflicts of
interest and embezzlement are on the rise as well. Subsidiaries of
multinationals in China increasingly are plagued simultaneously by fraud
and corruption issues, often at the hands of the same perpetrators.
This webinar provides
an overview of the emerging pressures and opportunities perpetrators of fraud
and corruption face in China. A backdrop of the indicators and implications
behind China’s slowing economy will be followed
by descriptions of opportunities and methods fraudsters have used to perpetrate
fraud and corruption schemes. It will also address tips for preventing and
detecting fraud and corruption.
