CORRUPTION AND BRIBERY

 

It is important to understand the levels of corruption and bribery in the economic activity of the customer or their associated businesses, in the principle country of business, particularly if the customer is a politically exposed person.  


The major data sources for bribery and corruption are Transparency International’s Perceptions Index and the World Bank’s Control of Corruption database. Other internet sources provide information on corruption on a country by country basis.
