Corruption is one of the prevailing problem in the world, but not in Denmark as it topped as the least corrupt country in 2018 by Transparency International.
Transparency International, is world renowned corruption watchdog.
Denmark has been declared the least corrupt country in the world with Somalia the most in a survey by a corruption watchdog.
Also, in the list, the U.S. has been knocked out of the top 20, while the UK sits in joint 11th place with Germany, according to Transparency International.
The organization released their Corruption Perceptions Index for 2018, with the U.S. losing four points and a warning about a ‘serious corruption problem’ in Donald Trump’s America.
According to the organization, based in Berlin, said: ‘A four point drop in the CPI score is a red flag and comes at a time when the US is experiencing threats to its system of checks and balance, as well as an erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power.’
‘If this trend continues, it would indicate a serious corruption problem in a country that has taken a lead on the issue globally -this is a bipartisan issue that requires a bipartisan solution.’
The United States slid four points lower on a global corruption index in 2018, dropping out of the top 20 countries for the first time since 2011, watchdog Transparency International said in a report that cited growing threats to democracy worldwide.
The group said its latest report on business leaders’ perceptions of corruption put the United States at 71, down from 75, on a scale of 0-100.
The watchdog’s acting representative to the U.S. Zoe Reiter said it sounded like a ‘wake-up call’ about the need to tackle conflicts of interest, undue influence of the private sector and widening gaps between rich and poor.
