Vanishing (public service announcement) (English)
Around the world, annual bribery is estimated to be in excess of one trillion US
dollars every year (World Bank Institute estimate)-- a figure that does not include
the costs of the schools, buildings and infrastructure denied the world by corruption.
Asia, home to the world's fastest growing economies and about 30% of the globe's
population, is especially affected by the human, democratic, environmental, and
social costs of corruption. Vanishing, a 30-second public service announcement
and call to action as part of a joint UNODC and UNDP campaign, sketches the
immediate lost opportunities and impacts of corruption.
Vanishing currently appears in both Thai and English until 31 December 2012,
as part of the in-flight entertainment package of Thai Airways International on
its international flights throughout Asia.
