- A discussion between two appraisers, one of whom is a lawyer, of various situations appraisers/business valuators may find themselves in and what may be their recourse.
- Session 3 - Due Diligence and Ethics in Emerging Economies – Paul Jones, Principal – Jones & Co. LLP, Toronto
- The influence of emerging economies in growth is perhaps best Illustrated by the development of the acronym “BRICS” (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) in 2001. While there are good financial opportunities in these countries, the methods of doing business vary, and business people from the developed economies sometimes have difficulty determining how to conduct themselves. This presentation will discuss the social characteristics of emerging economies, their legal systems (most are civil law jurisdictions), compliance with export controls, sanctions and anticorruption legislation, and how to reduce your risks with due diligence reports on the back ground of your counterparties in emerging economies.
