Global Corruption Barometer: Asia 2020

Booming economies, fast modernisation and a continued growth of the middle class are some of the key trends that shape Asia. While the disruptive effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic consequences cannot be over-stated, many countries in the region are managing to recover quickly, while others still suffer the dual health and economic crises.

Despite vast socio-economic and political differences, corruption remains one of the key challenges across the region.

Conducted between March 2019 and September 2020, the Global Corruption Barometer (GCB) – Asia is one of the largest, most detailed surveys of people's views and experiences of corruption and bribery in Asia.
