Today’s post is from Robert Wyld (an attorney at Johnson Winter & Slattery in Sydney).
Wyld is the Australia Expert for FCPA Professor.
This year-end review covers a range of important developments in Australia and overseas in the area of foreign bribery policy, investigations and regulation to 20 December 2017. It has been a busy year for politicians (creating new laws), regulators (pushing for easier ways to investigate and prosecute) and enforcers (Australia’s first foreign bribery convictions). And of course, and very much deserved, much enhanced private sector whistleblower protections are inching ever closer to reality.
