Launch of Global Corruption Report 2009


The report, launched by Transparency International on 23 September, has the theme Corruption and the Private Sector. The private sector plays a pivotal role in fighting corruption worldwide. The report documents in unique detail the many corruption risks for businesses, ranging from small entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa to multinationals from Europe and North America. More than 75 experts examine the scale, scope and devastating consequences of a wide range of corruption issues, including:

• bribery and policy capture
• corporate fraud
• cartels
• corruption in supply chains and transnational transactions
• emerging challenges for carbon trading markets
• sovereign wealth funds
• growing economic centres, such as Brazil, China and India

The Global Corruption Report 2009 also discusses the most promising tools to tackle corruption in business, identifies pressing areas for reform and outlines how companies, governments, investors, consumers and other stakeholders can contribute to raising corporate integrity and meeting the challenges that corruption poses to sustainable economic growth and development.
