Anti-corruption crackdown:
Doing business in emerging markets
Panel Discussion
 
Thursday 17 November 2016
 
On behalf of ACBC (WA) and together with event hosts King & Wood Mallesons and Control Risks, we would like to invite you to the Anti-corruption Crackdown: Doing business in emerging markets Panel Discussion, on Thursday 17 November 2016. 
 
In the wake of the continued anti-corruption efforts of the Chinese authorities and the significant and well publicised impact this is having on Australian corporates, we invite you to join a panel discussion on the latest developments in this area. 
 
Focused around a hypothetical factual scenario, the discussion is designed to share practical tips and “war stories” to help you navigate the real world risks of doing business in China. 
 
About our Speakers:
 
John Macpherson is a Senior Partner for Control Risks, Greater China and North Asia. Based in Shanghai, he advises companies operating and investing in China on the political aspects and motivations of Chinese regulatory investigations, fraud and corruption investigations and M&A risks.
