1.Trade Restriction: This government induced source of rent a seeking / corruption. The restriction on importation of foreign automobiles are examples of how government officials and politicians can make quick money  via rent Seeking/  corruption 

2.Government Subsidies: When government allocates scarce recourses to individuals and firms using legal criteria other than the ability or willingness to pay.  Corruption is likely to be the result. Corruption can thrive under industrial polices that allow poorly  - targeted subsidies to be appropriately by firms for which they are not indented
