ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role of bribery as treat to global economic development. The author mentions that bribery has been a treat for a country's prosperity during the economic downturn because it can distorts competition and impairs business. He emphasizes the need to address bribery to attract business and investment rather than discourage it. He also discusses the initiation of an international effort by Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD) to tacle bribery.
