The study inspects the effect of
corruption on economic growth
in China. Corruption is a permanent dilemma,
especially for emerging economies, and as a main
indicator of quality governance. The study uses
data from 1996 to 2015 for key variables e.g.
corruption perception index, trade openness. The
results show that in the short-run, China gains
from the typical corruption, nevertheless the
coefficient is statistically insignificant with a
slight degree. Though, to support long-run
sustainable economic growth, it is very important
to overwhelm corruption and ensure good
governance. The results show that Chinas
corruption prevents long-run economic growth.
Hence, to maintain stable development and strong
economic growth in China, more efforts are needed
to eliminate corruption from society
