Once again, an intelligent gathering of industry leaders and influencers will initiate a conversation aimed at shifting market perceptions and driving positive momentum via a series of panel discussions, presentations and keynote speeches.


Attended by over 250 delegates, the inaugural Asia Pacific Ethics & Compliance summit in January 2016 was a unique, landmark initiative that connected public and private sectors to create and drive a pro-active dialogue around best practice ethical conduct, culture, transparency, integrity and anti-corruption compliance.
