The government in Moldova has taken several steps to fight corruption, including law enforcement and institutional setups. The prosecution of officials who are involved in corruption has also increased in recent years. However, a business problem is one of the most challenging in the region. 
Transparency International’s 2016 Corruption Perception Index ranks the country 123th place out of 176 countries.  According to Transparency International, 37% of Moldovans report paying a bribe in 2010. One of the most perceived corrupt institutions is the police.
A large anti-corruption protest was held in Chişinău in September 2015 following a $ 1 billion (£ 655 million) bank fraud.
