TRACE International

Areeya Pornwiriyangkura, an attorney-at-law in Tilleke & Gibbins, is due to speak at an anti-bribery training workshop hosted by TRACE International. The workshop will feature a number of prominent local and foreign business people who are familiar with the challenges of international commercial transactions. Areeya will give an update on recent anti-corruption activities and cases in Thailand. The following main topics will also be discussed:

  • What constitutes bribery under international conventions and local law
  • How companies are handling the difficult issue of gifts and hospitality for government officials
  • Responding to requests for inappropriate payments
  • Challenges posed by the proliferation of international anti-bribery conventions
