The 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index published today by Transparency International is a turn up for the books.   Denmark has been recognised as having the least corrupt public sector, a status that it has shared over the last three years with New Zealand.  However in 2014 Denmark is seen as having improved its situation, and has moved ahead of New Zealand – which has an unchanged rating from 2013.

Only Denmark and New Zealand have the accolade of being “very clean” – scoring over 90 – and coloured differently on the Transparency International World map!

Among the top 14 countries, the scores for Singapore, Canada, Australia and Iceland continue to drop.
