Regulatory complexity is growing in the Asia-Pacific (Apac) region. Compliance teams face a formidable task in interpreting and applying global and regional guidelines – such as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (Fatca) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – and embedding best practice compliance across business operations.
Asia Risk and TMF Group developed a survey and convened a series of roundtable events to explore how firms are coping with these challenges, and discuss what’s needed to turn compliance into a source of competitive advantage.
In this series of videos, senior compliance professionals from Apac firms and TMF experts discuss some of the survey’s key learnings. In this video, Helen Chan, general counsel at Air Products Asia, and Leila Szwarc, global head of compliance at TMF Group, focus on the impact of regulation on different industries and the added complexity of interpreting global rules at a local level across differing cultures.
