Abstract

Commercial organisations practise corporate hospitality to develop loyalty and trust, keep in touch with clients, and weather business. A challenge exists where corporate hospitality may camouflage corruption. One of the pertinent issues is addressing the obscuring boundaries of corporate hospitality to ensure commercial organisations in Malaysia are not trapped in the labyrinth of corruption, which will affect the sustainability of the business. This research employs a doctrinal approach that utilises library-based research to procure both primary and secondary sources. The research outcome may assist the government, policymaker, and commercial organisations' stakeholders in combating corrupt practices within their organisations.
