Right or wrong? In China, you never really know where the red line is, even if you are the manager of a big company. At the same time, multinationals are banned from giving bribes to Chinese or other foreign officials by Western laws such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Recent cases involving pharmaceutical, financial services and other firms have only drawn greater attention to the issue. What exactly is the FCPA? How does it apply in a China context? Are more FCPA-related disclosures likely in the future as Chinese President Xi Jinping cracks down on corruption?
