  3. With decreasing competition, the quality of goods and services becomes worse;
  4. State revenues decrease and the shadow economy grows;
  5. Where corruption is tolerated, civil servants receive small salaries, yet with the saved budgetary expenses ordinary citizens have to pay them out of their pocket as bribes;
  6. Foreign investors have less trust in the state and their contribution to the coun­try’s economy decreases.

 impact of corruption on state governance:

  1. Less state investment and smaller efficiency of state-ordered works;
  2. Areas of governmental activities and structure of expenditure are subject to change – corrupt public officials “push” the projects which guarantee bigger gain;
