by FWi staff

AGRICULTURAL companies are likely to be the least corrupt industrial group trading in developing countries, according to a survey.

Construction groups, defence manufacturers and power and energy companies are rated as the most likely to be involved in corrupt practices.

The survey, carried out for Berlin-based Transparency International, is reported in The Guardian.
