Panellists will explore extraterritorial influences on the country’s anti-corruption efforts and the challenges faced by its current political and economic environment.

The next session will centre around anti-corruption developments from across the region and the unavoidable impact of politics. Following a networking lunch, delegates will reconvene for a discussion on the importance of strong compliance programmes in the absence of local enforcement efforts. The day will end with a panel on conducting internal investigations in a hybrid world and closing remarks from the co-chairs.
