Transparency International (TI) has just released its 2018 Corruption Perception Index (CPI). The CPI continues to be an important gauge by companies in managing corruption risks when conducting businesses in foreign countries.
TI reports that the Asia Pacific region has made little progress in the fight against corruption. With an average CPI score of 44 for three consecutive years, Asia Pacific is on par with the Americas (average score of 44) in its lack of progress and behind Western Europe and the European Union (average score of 66).
