CRI Group invites to attend the ABAC Summit 2019 - Pakistan
Date: 11 Dec 2018 By: CRI Group

CRI Group’s CEO Mr. Zafar Anjum invites to the Third Anti-Bribery Anti-Corruption Summit in Pakistan – the region’s paramount forum on Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption, providing participants with advanced and real-world practical insights on innovations on compliance, best-practice risk mitigation strategies, and updates on the ever-changing, fast-evolving anti-corruption landscape in Pakistan and worldwide.

This Summit brings together industry experts from the public and private sectors who will help you better understand and work through the increasingly complex challenges associated with bribery and corruption.

“It’s both a challenging and exciting time to work in the anti-bribery and anti-corruption business. From a global perspective, more and more organizations are waking up to the fact that corruption -- in its many forms -- can imperil operations, jeopardize sales, affect morale and negatively impact public perception.

We’re at a crossroads now where organizational awareness and forceful action are just beginning to outpace corrupt practices. And while the fight will most likely never be completely won, our industry is starting to make a concerted effort to forge inroads in the battle for transparency and good governance. Nowhere is that more prevalent than right here in Pakistan, a country whose Transparency International corruption perception index ranking has decreased steadily over the past several years, thanks to effective anti-corruption programs, increased awareness, and ever-stringent enforcement measures.

But the battle rages on as both the public and private sectors work around the many local, regional and global challenges that inhibit organizations from strengthening accountability and countering corruption. Among those many challenges are adherence to an evergrowing list of laws and regulations -- both here and throughout the region -- by which we as compliance, legal and corporate professionals must abide.

Add to that list the complexities in establishing a culture of compliance, the many facets of risk management, and establishing a framework for addressing corruption, and one can surely agree that creating a sound, effective anti-bribery anti-corruption program remains an uphill battle.

CRI Group, through its globally recognized Anti-Bribery Anti-Corruption Centre of Excellence (ABAC®), is pleased to host this Summit in a concerted effort to address the many challenges you face as professionals. Through a daylong forum which includes highly informative work sessions, group discussions, Q&A periods and plenary sessions, our goal is to provide you with the most up-to-date information and education designed to guide you through the complexities of your job. And we’re very thankful to have such noted speakers and highly regarded industry experts to lead the charge.

I hope you’ll consider joining us on January 29th, and look forward to seeing you in Islamabad. “
