Webinar | August.31.2021 | 8:00am - 9:15am (Eastern Standard Time)Webinar
On August 31, 2021, Orrick and the Cyrus R. Vance Center hosted a webinar on the multilateral development bank (MDB) sanctions and investigations, which focused on the World Bank and African Development Bank processes. The event featured Thomas Laryea and Kenton Atta-Krah from Orrick and a panelist from the Vance Center Fellows. Attendees included contractors on MDB financed projects and government officials.
The webinar focused on recent developments in MDB sanctions and investigations, including issues with MDB procurement, contracting processes and enforcement actions. With the recent increase in MDB financing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the compliance risks associated with the use of such financing warrants additional scrutiny by private parties and government officials. There was also a discussion on how recent outcomes in enforcement actions and investigations may influence anti-corruption and anti-bribery compliance.
