"Corruption has fallen, according to survey
Published: July 26, 2006
WASHINGTON Former communist countries and Turkey have simplified taxation, overhauled regulations and reduced bureaucracy in a generally successful fight against corruption but Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Albania lag because of poor enforcement, the World Bank said Wednesday.
The survey was the third anti-corruption survey by the World Bank of 26 former communist countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia and Turkey. It found that bribery was on the decline in many countries, but the level of corruption still tended to be higher than in Western Europe."
