Global Corruption Barometer 2013

Global Corruption Barometer 2013

On July 9th Transparency International released the 2013 Global Corruption Barometer.  presents the main findings of a public opinion survey on corruption and bribery around the world, including New Zealand.

This report shows political parties followed by Parliament and the private sector are viewed as the most corrupt institutions in New Zealand, with the military perceived to be the least corrupt. An amazing 73% of New Zealanders believe corruption is increasing.

Alarmingly, 4% of New Zealanders admitted they had paid a bribe in New Zealand in the last 12 months.

This compares with 9% in Singapore and nil (0%) in Denmark. The New Zealand figure was higher than the countries we traditionally benchmark against – Australia (2%) and the UK (1%).
