Publisher: Hart Publishing
Abstract:This article evaluates the anti-bribery aspects of the 2011 amendment to the 1997 Criminal Law of the People's Republic of China in light of the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in Business Transactions. While this article praises this amendment as being a step in the right direction in combating bribery of foreign government officials and officials of international public organisations, this article concludes that it is difficult to accept a characterisation of this amendment as being equivalent to the FCPA or the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.
