Corruption and bribery are not limited to multinationals engaging with high levels of government. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which are part of almost every supply chain, also face those problems.

Under the auspices of the Czech Presidency of the European Union, join us – the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Accountancy Europe, SMEunited and the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) – on a lively webinar about how decision makers, standard setters, regulators, enforcers and stakeholders can guide SMEs and help create more effective, cost-efficient and tailored anti-corruption and bribery approaches.
