Navigating the Evolving Challenges of Corruption, Fraud and FCPA Issues in China

April 25, 2019 | 2:00 p.m. ET

Duration: 100 minutes

CPE Credit: 2

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.
