CRA and Mattos Filho discussed how Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) enforce their rules and interact with government enforcement agencies when wrongdoing is identified in a MDB financed project, with a focus in Latin America. We covered trends and key issues, including:
◦How do MDBs interact with government enforcement agencies once wrongdoing is identified?
◦What are the issues that MDBs consider when companies self-report wrongdoing and how they evaluate cooperation?
◦What has been the experience and lessons learned from actions stemming from investigations conducted by the Ministério Público Federal in Brazil?
◦What about in other jurisdictions in Latin America?
◦What MDBs and government enforcement agencies expect from such interactions?
◦What has changed in recent legislation in Brazil that empowers and supports the MDBs efforts in fostering transparency and collaboration?
Cynthia Catlett was a panelist during the session.
The webinar will be in English with live translation into Portuguese.
