September 18, 2017

Asia-based lawyer Shaun Wu explored developments in international cooperation and mutual legal assistance at the forum on Strengthening International Cooperation for a Clean Belt and Road in Beijing. The seminar was hosted by The Ministry of Supervision (MOS) of the Government of the People's Republic of China and China’s top anti-graft watchdog, Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) in collaboration with the World Bank.

The panel, titled “International Cooperation to Fight Corruption,” examined how to identify regulatory authorities’ powers and limitations in cross-border enforcement, provided insights into defining an internal investigation’s scope, and reviewed key considerations for working with legal counsel and external consultants.

The Belt and Road Initiative, put forward by China in 2013, is aimed at building the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road through concerted efforts of all related countries to benefit all participants by promoting unimpeded trade, financial integration, infrastructure connectivity and closer people-to-people exchanges.
