Part 2: International Sanctions Compliance Best Practices

Increasing corporate pressure to identify new revenue streams, the disruptive business landscape and more stringent, incongruous policies across jurisdictions create complex obstacles for multinational companies.

Companies doing business in Asia are more susceptible to certain risks including fraudulent reporting, misappropriation of assets and the lack of management integrity. In certain countries, where corruption is pervasive, it is often witnessed that a minority of the firms get caught for bribery while the majority get away with it. Furthermore, relationship-building is culturally important and gift-giving is common practice and can mean a competitive edge for the business.
As such, how would one abstain from crossing the fine line between harmless gift-giving and improper gratuities? How would CEOs, legal counsel and risk managers overcome the potential nightmare of the authorities knocking on their door due to a minuscule failure of principle, despite spending the heightening costs for compliance and having a robust anti-corruption ethos?
