The reputational and business risks associated with conducting business in emerging and expanding markets, with new business partners, agents, joint ventures, vendors, suppliers and distributors are increasingly significant for business executives who are competing for business on a global scale; moreover, the dramatic increase in U.S. and international regulatory enforcement actions has added to the challenge that executives face in their global business operations.

At our June Executive Breakfast Briefing, PwC risk advisory and control solutions experts Vivian Huo and Senior Manager Katie Xu will share insights and practice of MNC companies with local operation in China, who have confronted these by conducting enhanced due diligence before a deal goes through, creating a process of business intelligence collection as decisions are made along the way, and adopting an ongoing, independent business partner compliance review program. These measures not only give business leaders critical information to make sharper risk-based decisions, but also serve to demonstrate to regulators that the company is committed to integrity and corporate governance.

AmCham China, Tianjin's monthly executive breakfast is a great opportunity to meet the members of the Executive Committee and become involved in the Tianjin professional community. Network and share information with your fellow members, while enjoying a delicious breakfast at a great price.
