In the wake of the continued anti-corruption efforts of the Chinese authorities and the significant and well publicised impact this is having on Australian corporates, we invite you to join a panel discussion on the latest developments in this area. 

Focused around a hypothetical factual scenario, the discussion is designed to share practical tips and “war stories” to help you navigate the real world risks of doing business in China.
