  • Have UK exporters and their sub-contractors developed effective anti-bribery policies as a result of the Bribery Act?
  • How could these companies improve their efforts to prevent bribery?
  • How does the Bribery Act compare with equivalent legislation in other countries?
  • Are there other approaches, either in terms of legislation or enforcement, which the UK could learn from?
