The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, together with the Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry invite you to a seminar on Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC) for Business.

Corruption is a global phenomenon which presents a particularly significant risk to businesses operating in developing countries. This seminar will explore:

·         How DFAT can help business minimise and manage corruption issues and risks overseas

·         Practical guidance and tips on how to protect yourself, your business and your employee interests

 

Presented by Tamsin Bendeler-Cartledge, lawyer with the Transnational Crime Section at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. 

Australian sanctions laws implement United Nations Security Council sanctions regimes and Australian autonomous sanctions regimes. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade administers Australia’s sanctions regimes.
