Data - Exporting Corruption 2020


Moderate Enforcement level
4 Investigations opened

Portugal demonstrates moderate enforcement against companies bribing abroad and accounts for 0.4 per cent of global exports. Between 2016 and 2019, Portugal opened 4 investigations and 1 case of foreign bribery, however, no cases were closed with sanctions.

Effective enforcement against foreign bribery is hindered by a lack of resources, a lack of expertise in economic crimes, and a sluggishness within the judicial system for processing cases.
