Business Corruption in Italy

Italy flagCorruption is a major problem in Italy. The integrity of public officials is marred by their relationships with organised crime and businesses. Public procurement, particularly infrastructure, presents a very high risk of corruption, as it involves large resources and exposes companies to organised crime. Extortionactive and passive bribery, bribing a foreign public official, fraud and money laundering are criminalised under the Criminal Code of the Italian Republic. The anti-corruption laws broaden the scope and punishment of corruption offences, and are generally implemented effectively. Italy is a signatory to the OECD Convention and has rejected the exception for facilitation payments.
