Bribe Payers Index 20082008-12-12 Transparency International has recently published the Bribe Payers Index for 2008. The Bribe Payers Index (BPI) is updated on a bi-annual basis by Transparency International.
The index ranks 22 of the world's most economically influential countries according to the likelihood of their firms to bribe when doing business abroad. The main conclusion of the 2008 index is that companies based in Belgium and Canada are perceived as being least likely to bribe, whereas companies from India, China and Russia are perceived as being most likely to do so. Furthermore, the 2008 BPI indicates that companies in public works contracts and construction; real estate and property development; oil and gas; heavy manufacturing; and mining were seen to bribe officials most frequently.
