Event Synopsis:

The joint Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission, "A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practice Act," highlights the agencies intention and approach to halt corrupt practices and bribery of U.S companies to foreign officials.

Aside from addressing enforcement issues, (1) Definition of Foreign Official; (2) Issues on Gifts, Travel and Entertainment; (3) Mergers and Acquisition and Successor Liability; and (4) Effective Compliance Program, were also discussed as they are deemed relevant to FCPA.
