14 joulukuu 2016

The French-Finnish Chamber of Commerce in Helsinki, in partnership with EY, is delighted to invite you to a seminar on corporate compliance.

Fighting fraud and corruption: the key to make business environment more efficient and to ensure sustainable growth

According to the French Ministry of Finances, the correlation between corruption and growth is evaluated by 0.2 point of GDP per year in the mid and long term. In a globalized and competitive world some multinational companies became aware that their reputation and reliability will come from efficient, sound and irreproachable anti-corruption prevention programmes. The seminar will give you the latest trends as well as hands-on experience on fraud and misconduct in various contexts but also insights to understand how sound corporate compliance is one of the levers for growth.
