“While the public sector is waking up to the need to prevent corruption, progress has been close to non-existent for political party funding, the administration of parliament, civil society and the business sector. Unless the tone at the top improves our country remains vulnerable to overseas corruption and the trusted society of which we are so proud is at risk,” says Suzanne Snively, Chair, Transparency International New Zealand.
