Transparency International's annual report on global enforcement of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention concluded that no progress had been made since 2010. The report's major conclusions noted that the number of countries with active or moderate enforcement remained at 7 and 9 respectively. 21 countries had little or no enforcement. The authors expressed concern that this showed that there had been a loss of momentum during the current economic downturn, with countries prioritising new business over their anti-corruption efforts. However, the main cause of the lack of progress was attributed to a lack of political leadership in those countries with little or no enforcement of the convention.
