Least corrupt

As far as perception goes, the public sector in Barbados is the least corrupt in the Caribbean and among the least corrupt in the world.

Transparency International (TI) today released the 2013 Corruption Perception Index – which ranks public sectors across the world according to perception of

corruption – which put Barbados at number 15 out of 177 countries.

The island tied with Belgium and Hong Kong for that spot.

Barbados received a score of 76 out of 100 – one less than in 2012.

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries following Barbados in the index are Bahamas and St Lucia (22), St Vincent and the Grenadines (33), Jamaica and Trindiad and Tobago (83), Guyana (136) and Haiti (163).

This year’s index shows New Zealand tying with Denmark as the least corrupt. (DP)

    Does being 98 % literate offset our discovery?

    I’m really pleased to get this news. I am a Proud Bajan who wants the best for the country. I’m however seeing a trend where GOOD follows the BAD (public service layoffs, downgrade).
