Background

This seminar will examine investment laws in the United States and the United Kingdom, which are known for their extremely wide international jurisdictional reach governing anti-bribery and corruption. The seminar will also address the challenges that can arise when investing in high-risk jurisdictions and industries, particularly infrastructure development in Asian and African countries.

The event is co-organized by ADBI, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, and the Japan Institute for Overseas Investment.

Objectives

Output
  • Shared knowledge and experiences on responding to the challenge of high-risk jurisdictions and industries, particularly infrastructure development in Asian and African countries
