Recent research has shown that global corruption can increase state
purchase costs up to 20-25%. Moreover, many companies are now facing
a dilemma: whether to give bribes to achieve their goals or just step
aside and leave the risky market.

World Bank has published a guidebook - "United Fighting against
Corruption" (web site-fightingcorruption.org). The guidebook is aimed
to help companies prevent tricky influences of corruption.

"The main goal of the guidebook is creating equal conditions for all
the companies which would certainly expire in continuing corruption,"
the chief of the World Bank's agenda Georgia Petskoski says.

Note that the coalition created by World Bank, includes such NGO-s and
international organizations as Global Treaty of UN, member companies
of Grand Thornton International, etc.
