Mexico's Growing Focus on Combating Corruption

More than 100 members of the Mexican legal and business communities gathered in Mexico City on March 25 and 26, 2014 to attend the American Conference Institute’s First Annual Mexico Summit on Anti-Corruption. The two-day summit featured 18 different panels of in-house counsel and compliance officers from Mexico’s energy, manufacturing and security sectors. Mexican government officials and legislators also attended and presented at the summit. Highlights included: 1) comparing the evolving regulatory landscape in Mexico to established Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and United Kingdom (UK) Bribery Act standards; 2) discussing anti-corruption initiatives in Mexico City; 3) best practices for ensuring compliance in high-risk transactions in light of the Latin American cultural landscape; and 4) addressing corruption issues in conjunction with the limitations of Mexican labor law.
