  • When to report potential difficulties related to bribery and when to involve the federal government?



Corruption is said to be an endemic phenomenon that pervades Mexican society. It goes unsaid that it is also not good for business, which is why all eyes are now on the upcoming implementation of the El Sistema Nacional Anticorrupción. Mexico’s new anti-bribery legislation will have a major impact across the board from multinationals to law firms, and ACI is offering a unique opportunity to learn how these changes are expected to play out:
