TRACE International, the globally renowned anti-bribery standard setting organization, has published its annual Global Enforcement Report. The Global Enforcement Report (GER) provides graphic and textual analyses of all known investigations and enforcement actions involving transnational commercial bribery since the passage of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
