January 10, 2018

On January 10, Shaun Wu discussed the key steps for conducting internal investigations at the Integrity Compliance Management Workshop for Chinese Enterprises in Belt & Road Countries at the World Bank Office in Beijing. The seminar was hosted by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, the Integrity Vice Presidency and the World Bank Group.

The session titled, "Conducting Investigations and Cooperation," focused on pre-investigation considerations, including how to create an internal response plan; establishing clear lines of communication between internal investigators and management; and potential integrity issues. The panel also outlined key investigative steps, such as identifying the regulators and regulations involved, maximizing "privilege-like" protection and conducting internal scoping interviews.
