mapJoin the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) on Monday, November 10 for a discussion on Anti-corruption Compliance for Mid-Sized Companies in Emerging Markets.

In today’s globalized world, where international value chains stretch across borders and continents, anti-corruption compliance provides a vital competitive advantage. Ethical companies tend to have higher valuations, are more attractive to potential investors and employees, and are more likely to be engaged in long-term arrangements with their business partners. Increasingly, companies are expected to ensure not just the integrity of their own operations but also the conduct of their suppliers, distributors, and agents wherever they may be.

At the same time, in many countries, fighting corruption seems to be an impossible battle, especially for mid-sized companies with limited resources operating in corruption-tainted environments. CIPE’s newest publication, Anti-Corruption Compliance: A Guide for Mid-Sized Companies in Emerging Markets, is meant to help local companies around the world think about anti-corruption compliance as a strategic investment and take concrete steps to introduce or strengthen their internal compliance programs. Please join us for the launch event of the guidebook and a panel discussion on the challenges of, and opportunities for, extending anti-corruption compliance to smaller companies globally.
