The World Bank and other multilateral development banks, in a continuing show of force, are chasing wrongdoers and cutting off funding of programs involving entities which don’t walk the line. Two major French companies have faced hefty fines in the United States in 2014 and authorities are now openly targeting individuals. Tailing on their US counterparts, enforcement authorities globally pose a new challenge to old habits. The French Central Anti-Corruption Service published in March 2015 Guidelines to fight corruption in commercial transactions.
France’s statute on criminal settlements is now several years old and a major agreement involving a company is yet to be seen. The magnitude of fines globally has led investigating magistrates to considerably increase bail for corporate entities (up to 1 billion euro) and take an increasingly aggressive stance against companies which did not come clean. In a complete new world of international enforcement, French companies are faced unsolvable dilemmas.
Panelists are experts of their field and will discuss practical aspects for French companies who want to turn this new situation to a competitive – and safe – advantage.

Panelists will speak in English and French. A report on the panel will be made in English.
