In 1999, Belgium adhered to the OECD Convention against Corruption of foreign public agents in international commercial transactions.
Every year on the occasion of the Day against Corruption (December 9th), Belgian diplomatic posts are reminded of their duty to inform Belgian companies active in their jurisdiction of the scope of the Convention and their obligations in this regard.
The event aims at informing the business community in the UAE about the Convention itself, the Anti-corruption guide for Belgian enterprises overseas, the Belgian Law relative to the repression of corruption of 1999 and its review law of 2006 and finally the relevant United Nations Conventions against corruption.
During the event, Ambassador Peter Claes and First Secretary Frederic Van Peteghem will clarify the above and engage in a dialogue with the business community on this important topic.
This session will be followed by a seminar, focussing on the different aspects of GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU Regulation which affects companies in the EU as well as companies outside the EU territory due to its extra-territorial scope. Privacy and personal data protection have become hot topics worldwide, with the introduction of the GDPR and the increasing number of fines and data breach cases making the headlines daily.
Given the importance of privacy and data protection, we have decided to organise a Privacy and Data Protection Awareness Session to discuss the impact of privacy legislations such as the GDPR and what they concretely mean for Belgian companies operating in the UAE.
The Session will be held by Dessi Vitcheva, Head of Regulatory Compliance of the Belgian Branch of Transcendent Group Consulting Firm.
