It’s both a challenging and exciting time to work in the anti-bribery and anti-corruption business. From a global perspective, more and more organizations are waking up to the fact that corruption — in its many forms — can imperil operations, jeopardize sales, affect morale and negatively impact public perception. We’re at a crossroads now where organizational awareness and forceful action are just beginning to outpace corrupt practices. And while the fight will most likely never be completely won, our industry is starting to make a concerted effort to forge inroads in the battle for transparency and good governance. Nowhere is that more prevalent than right here in Pakistan, a country whose Transparency International corruption perception index ranking has decreased steadily over the past several years, thanks to effective anti-corruption programs, increased awareness, and ever-stringent enforcement measures. But the battle rages on as both the public and private sectors work around the many local, regional and global challenges that inhibit organizations from strengthening accountability and countering corruption. Among those many challenges are adherence to an evergrowing list of laws and regulations — both here and throughout the region — by which we as compliance, legal and corporate professionals must abide. Add to that list the complexities in establishing a culture of compliance, the many facets of risk management, and establishing a framework for addressing corruption, and one can surely agree that creating a sound, effective anti-bribery anti-corruption program remains an uphill battle. CRI Group, through its globally recognized Anti-Bribery Anti-Corruption Centre of Excellence (ABAC®), is pleased to host this Summit in a concerted effort to address the many challenges you face as professionals. Through a daylong forum which includes highly informative work sessions, group discussions, Q&A periods and plenary sessions, our goal is to provide you with the most up-to-date information and education designed to guide you through the complexities of your job. And we’re very thankful to have such noted speakers and highly regarded industry experts to lead the charge. I hope you’ll consider joining us on January 29th, and look forward to seeing you in Islamabad.

About the Conference

CRI Group’s Third Anti-Bribery Anti-Corruption Summit in Pakistan – the region’s paramount forum on Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption, providing participants with advanced and real-world practical insights on innovations on compliance, best-practice risk mitigation strategies, and updates on the ever-changing, fast-evolving anti-corruption landscape in Pakistan and worldwide.

This Summit brings together industry experts from the public and private sectors who will help you better understand and work through the increasingly complex challenges associated with bribery and corruption.

 

Summit Overview

Islamabad Today’s leaders no longer simply view anti-bribery and corruption programs solely from the standpoint of regulatory enforcement. That view of compliance has been coupled to include safeguarding the brand and protecting the organization’s reputation. But the complex global regulatory landscape — and increased enforcement of current and new regulations — still ranks very high in the minds of those tasked with successfully carrying out anti-bribery and anti-corruption programs. CRI Group’s 3rd Anti-Bribery & Anti-Corruption Summit – Pakistan brings together likeminded experts from around the region to Islamabad, Pakistan in a forum designed to address the ever-changing complex world of compliance regulations and requirements, while offering proven strategies, tactics, and best-practices to conquer the many challenges you face in your role as risk manager, compliance, legal or management professional. You’ll hear discussions on such wide-ranging topics as international regulatory frameworks; establishing an ethics and compliance culture; bribery risk management; and current legislation affecting anti-corruption enforcement efforts. We’ll transition from an international scope to spotlight anti-corruption efforts in Pakistan, where systematic corruption remains a substantial obstacle in both the public and private sectors. We’ll delve into concepts, laws, and regulations driving Pakistan’s anti-corruption enforcement efforts, and examine the effectiveness of the country’s National Accountability Bureau (NAB). We’ll even discuss a strategic framework for maintaining Pakistan’s GSP+ status. And through it all, you’ll have many opportunities to share your thoughts and ideas with industry professionals, ask questions to our panel of experts and go head-to-head some of the best minds in the business. It is our firm objective to equip you with real-world practical insight on innovations in compliance, best-practice risk mitigation strategies and the latest industry updates you need to effectively wade through today’s rapidly changing and fast-evolving anti-bribery and anti-corruption landscape.
