World Congress Against Corruption

Mexico City, • English and Spanish
ICC MENA Conference on International Arbitration

For the first time in the history of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Mexico will host the World Congress Against Corruption on 9 March 2017 in Mexico City. The ICC, as representative of more than 6.5 million companies worldwide, wants to encourage a new form of doing business in the world, free of corruption, promoting investment and the sustainable growth of nations.

Description

Corruption is a phenomenon that infiltrates all sectors of society. Accepting this reality, ICC México has decided to bring together in this world anti-corruption meeting key players in global business, from the public sector (including tax officials, judges and directors of agencies responsible for combating corruption), from international organizations, as well as members of organized civil society, to discuss best practices for combating corruption.

This Congress will address emblematic cases of fighting corruption as told by companies that have experienced them, and who have revised and strengthened their Compliance programs at the national and international level. It will also present the vision of International organizations focused on fighting corruption; it will explain the Latin American experience of Brazil, Guatemala and Colombia in their struggle against the phenomenon and will analyze one of the most complex challenges of corruption: how to measure corruption and the costs it generates.

In this context, ICC México invites you to participate in the “International Congress against Corruption. Strategies and actions of the global business sector in combating corruption and impunity”.
