Not to Corruption in International Business

EENI wish to recognise publicly the significant efforts that Transparency Int. Is doing to fight the scourge of corruption.

Description of the Sub-Subject: Transparency International:

Transparency International (TI) was created in 1993 with the aim to fight against the global corruption. The vision of TI is “A world free of corruption: governments, politics, business, civil society and people.” Today is present in 100 countries (local chapters).

According to Transparency International:

“Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.”

Some of his achievements are:

  1. International anti-corruption conventions (for example the Integrity Pact)
  2. Corporate awareness in the struggle against the corruption (Corruption Perceptions Index)
  3. Trials against corrupt people

Transparency International has developed an indicator based on perceptions to measure global corruption in the public sector (both administrative and political); the Corruption Perceptions Index, an essential tool for any company operating in the global market.

  1. Ten least corrupt countries: Denmark, Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, Singapore, Switzerland, Australia, Norway, Canada, and the Netherlands
  2. Ten most corrupt countries: Haiti, Venezuela, Iraq, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Myanmar, Sudan, Afghanistan, North Korea, and Somalia

66% of the 176 economies ranked in the Corruption Perceptions Index of Transparency International has scored below fifty points (0 maximum level of corruption, 100 minima).

  1. Denmark, Finland, and New Zealand occupy the first place (90 points), while, Afghanistan, North Korea, and Somalia occupy the last place with eight point.
  2. Spain is in 30th place (65 points) just behind Botswana!

Transparency International achievements affect the foreign trade by strengthening the legal and political framework.
