''The determinants of corporate corruption in Cameroon''
( 2014, Vol. 34 No.2 )
The objective of this study is to identify the determinants of corporate corruption in Cameroon with data of the national institute of statistics in Cameroon. I find out that, companies have devoted 0.747% and 1.56% of their turnover (companies' revenue) respectively to pay bribes and to give gifts to civil servants. In addition, corporate corruption in Cameroon is caused by poverty and the weak institutions, it is more rampant in certain regions rich in natural resources. For these reasons, the government should fight against corporate corruption in poor communities and in localities rich in natural resources. It must particularly promote governance in the following public administrations: police, gendarmerie and taxes. It should also enhance its credibility by communicating its strategies to fight against corruption. Finally, it must simplify administrative procedures.
