The Line Between Gifts and Bribes

Gifts and bribes in Malaysia - the difference/similarity.

It’s quite telling (and embarrassing) of the Malaysian reality when even foreign authors can see what we can’t about business in Malaysia:

“…Corruption and bribery are somewhat common in Malaysia’s public and private sectors. However, people may draw the line differently, viewing minor payments as rewards for getting a job done rather than as bribes. Also, keep in mind that there is a fine line between giving gifts and bribing. What you may consider a bribe, a Malaysian may view as only a nice gift.”
