Transparency International publishes Asia Pacific corruption poll

Many governments in Asia Pacific fail to stop corruption;
900 million people are paying bribes

From the media release, "Approximately 900 million — or just over one in four — people living in 16 countries in Asia Pacific, including some of its biggest economies, are estimated to have paid a bribe to access public services, according to a new public opinion poll from the anti-corruption movement Transparency International."

While we have participated in the past, New Zealand was not included in the 2016 survey.
