But the difficulty does not stop, even increases because of the motive for benefits. Hence from being the victim, business becomes the agent to promote bribery.
More dangerously, bribery turns into a contagious disease speeding from public to private sector where bribery is committed both internally and externally in businesses: bribery offering to superiors, appropriation of public asset, abuse of power to gain individual benefit …etc. The businesses are degraded internally.
Bribery wastes an unofficial expense but more importantly business competition is depleted, lost investment opportunities due to lacking of transparent policies. While gaining little benefit in short term, companies lost future development, even encounter to severe legal consequences.
