The China Business Review will host a webinar focused on protecting intellectual property and preventing corruption in the global supply chain on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 9:00am ET (10:00pm Beijing).
By 2015, the value of counterfeit and pirated materials is expected to hit $1.77 trillion. Corruption adds as much as 25 percent to procurement costs; and 61 percent of supply chain managers view corruption as one of their top two risks. In this session,
- Gain insights on the current environment in China for companies working with suppliers on the issues of intellectual property protection and corruption prevention.
- Hear highlights of a new Conference Board report outlining how leading multinational companies today rate their risks and compliance efforts around IP protection and anti-corruption.
- Discover how companies are tackling these difficult issues using a process-based approach with their supply chain companies to measure and improve their systems.
- Learn about new leading practices for intellectual property protection and anti-corruption using on-line self-assessments, independent evaluations and training.
The webinar will be led by David Hoffman, vice president and managing director at The Conference Board China Center for Economics and Business, and the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade (CREATe’s) president and CEO Pamela Passman.
