Rahman Ravelli to be guest speaker at the Think Global conference

22 March 2021

Posted in: Bribery & Corruption.

Rahman Ravelli has been invited to speak at the International Trade Council’s Think Global conference.

Think Global, which is being held on 12-15 April, is one of the major international events designed to assist businesses on matters such as exporting, importing, foreign direct investment and overcoming technical barriers to trade. The virtual event attracts manufacturers, exporters of products and services and supply-chain management firms from across the globe.

Rahman Ravelli will be speaking about how those in business need to be aware of, and respond to, the risks of corruption worldwide.

Their speech, “Handling corruption issues - Why corruption risk is not just about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act’’, will consider the implications of a recent US legal judgement for those engaged in business in more than one country.

The decision last summer in the case of US v Napout, in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, dramatically expanded the ability of US prosecutors to target corruption in jurisdictions around the world. It confirmed that foreign bribery can be prosecuted in the US as wire fraud, even when no US company or citizen is involved.

Rahman Ravelli's speech will detail what the judgement means for businesses both inside and outside the US, and how it should affect how they devise and implement their anti-bribery compliance procedures. They will focus, in part, on those companies involved in development projects sponsored by multilateral development banks (MDBs) or the International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), much of whose financing comes from the US government.
