An American Manufacturer Is Setting Up A Manufacturing Plant In China

An American manufacturer is setting up a manufacturing plant in China. A Chinese telecommunications worker has asked the American firm’s agent to pay him a fee of $500 for setting up Internet service in the new plant. Under the FCPA, if the American agent pays the fee, it will be considered:

              a.           perfectly legal; the Chinese telecommunications firm deserves to be paid for its services.

              b.          questionable; the American agent should confirm that this is the appropriate amount and person to pay for the service.

              c.           totally illegal; it is obviously a bribe.

              d.          none of the above.
