The podcast to accompany the September edition of International Construction includes a discussion of the news that CEOs of major Brazilian contractors OAS and Camargo Corrêa have been convicted of bribery and money laundering following the Operation Lava Jato (Operation Carwash) investigation into corruption at Brazilian state oil company Petrobras.

Also included in this month’s podcast is a look our regional report on the Southern African construction market, which is feeling an impact from low global commodity prices.
