Lex Mundi Anticorruption Compliance Guide—Myanmar Report

Lex Mundi

Timothy Wales, a senior consultant working in Tilleke & Gibbins’ Yangon office, has contributed local insight on anti-bribery and corruption legislation in Myanmar for Lex Mundi’s Anticorruption Compliance Guide . This in-depth guide provides up-to-date information on anti-bribery and corruption regimes across 78 jurisdictions globally. Information is presented in jurisdiction-specific reports, following a question and answer format, which allows readers to easily compare and contrast anticorruption compliance around the world.

Timothy’s contribution gives readers easy-to-comprehend legal information in relation to anti-bribery and corruption legislation in Myanmar. His report dives into the country’s key legislation fighting bribery and corruption: the Penal Code and the Anti-Corruption Law of 2013. Building on that basis, he provides insight on two more recent laws that touch on bribery and corruption as part of the government’s initiative to demonstrate commitment to improving opportunities for foreign business and investment.

In addition to contributing the Myanmar report for the guide, Tilleke & Gibbins’ legal professionals also supplied responses for the reports covering Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.
