PwC has completed its annual survey report for 2009, and this year Ukraine is for the first time qualified for a territory-specific study based on a significant level of participants. Ukrainian businesses contributed a total of 65 of 3000 global responses, 70% generated from Ukrainian top management.
The global survey confirms that the economic turmoil of last year is adversely affecting the level of crime in the business environment. Findings in Ukraine are consistent with global results, suggesting increase in the risk of economic crime. Therefore, the detection and prevention of economic crimes is a critical priority for Ukrainian business, particularly in the midst of the current economic crisis.
