The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) is a U.S. federal law known primarily for its provisions prohibiting bribery of foreign officials. The FCPA has been in the spotlight recently, with U.S. law enforcement agencies aggressively pursuing investigations of high profile corporations, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups arguing that the statute needs significant reform.
This event will focus on the potential impact of the FCPA on U.S. competitiveness abroad, including a panel of both academics and business leaders to explore the public policy and business perspectives on this issue.
