Corruption in both the public and private sectors is still a widespread problem across the world. Businesses entering new markets run the risk of being exposed to bribery, fraud and a range of other forms of corruption. It is crucial for companies to be aware of the risks associated with business corruption, understand how to identify situations where it may arise and learn how to best tackle it.
Join us for an interactive breakfast seminar on how to deal with corruption whilst expanding to new markets. Your organisation will get first hand information and insight regarding dealing with corruption from both public and private sector players. The Swedish Foreign Ministry, alongside Ambassadors to African countries, a large multi-national corporation, as well as a smaller company will share their experiences on how they are dealing with corruption when doing business in Africa.
Topics that will be covered:
- How do I recognise and deal with corruption in new markets?
- How much do I need to adapt to the âlocal business cultureâ?
- How do I know if my partner or customer is transparent?
- What about all those extra âfeesâ?
- What kind of assistance can I get?
