ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) for multinational corporations in the U.S. It is noted that FCPA was enacted in 1977 by Congress to curb the increasing spread of bribery and foreign officials. The FCPA requires multinational corporations to be in command of the business activities of their overseas subsidiaries to ensure that they remain FCPA compliant.
