Control Risks Group ContinuingSpring 2004 Breakfast Seminar Series

Thursday, April 1, 2004 - 01:00

Control Risks Group will continue its Spring 2004 Breakfast Briefing Series this month and next with a pair of New York City seminars.

On Tuesday, April 27, Control Risks will present International Fraud and Corruption: The Nightmare for Corporate Executives and Board Members in the Sarbanes-Oxley Era. This session will attempt to answer questions such as: How do corporate executives and board members stay in compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley when their businesses require managing borders, cultures and local business practices, which inherently often contravene Sarbanes-Oxley? How do they fulfill their obligations when corporate assets have disappeared on the other side of the globe? Panelists will discuss how to tackle these ethical, business and legal conundrums facing corporations today.

On Tuesday, May 25, Control Risks is offering Risks and Realities of Doing Business in China. Incredible potential in China has attracted increasing foreign direct investment, and companies are flocking to establish physical operations or local partnerships. However, with this potential comes a commensurate level of risk and many have become victims in a difficult, complex and still developing economic framework. Speakers will discuss risks facing companies either doing or considering doing business in China and provide insights as to how these risks can be managed.

Each session takes place from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at The Princeton Club, 15 West 43rd Street, New York City. Registration begins at 8 a.m.

There is no charge for these seminars. For further information, call Dana Kelly at (212) 967-3955 or e-mail
