Letter from the Editor, July 2015
Aside from the high profile investigations and charges against multinational companies that have dominated the news, has China’s anti-corruption campaign had any real impact on commercial bribery? If so, what?
The Anti-Fraud Network commissioned Dorsey & Whitney China and Blackpeak to examine recent corruption cases and conduct confidential conversations with their clients and contacts to provide a snapshot of the current situation in relation to corruption in China, and valuable insight into what areas of business are vulnerable now. Together, Nick Blank, Frank Hong and I provide guidance on the practical, proactive and preventive steps that can be taken to prevent corruption and protect businesses.
The report has generated considerable media interest. Frank Hong spoke on BBC World News’ Asia Business Report on 28 June about our findings. On 10 July I spoke to Commercial Risk Europe, and Nick Blank spoke with Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence.
