Corruption is a key issue in governance in the Philippines, where its costs already run into the billions. It is as familiar to Filipinos as the policeman on the street who allows vehicles to park where they shouldn't in exchange for a daily fee, or the government clerk who'll put the papers of a bribe-giver on top of those for the signature of the next official.
The more complex deals involving millions or even billions, Filipinos only get to hear about when the media discovers and exposes them. But in the last decade or so corruption in government has become of interest to such foreign lending institutions as the World Bank and other groups like Transparency International that Filipinos now get a yearly assessment of the state of corruption in their country.
