Data - Exporting Corruption 2020


Moderate Enforcement level
24 Investigations opened

Brazil moderately enforces against companies bribing abroad. The country, which accounts for 1.1 per cent of global exports, opened 24 investigations and concluded 3 cases with sanctions.

The unending stream of corruption scandals unearthed by Operação Lava Jato has not prompted the much-needed structural reforms to the country’s political and judicial systems.

To make matters worse, recently, Brazil’s anti-corruption legal and institutional framework has suffered multiple setbacks, with President Bolsonaro interfering politically in virtually all anti-corruption agencies.
