TI publishes CPI 2016

Transparency International has published the Corruption Perceptions Index for 2016.  The updated index shows little significant change at the top. Denmark remains the “cleanest” jurisdiction, now tying with New Zealand. The rest of the top 10 comprise Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Singapore, Netherlands, Canada, and Germany, Luxembourg and the UK tying in 10th place. Only these jurisdictions score over 80 on the index (out of a possible 100 “cleanliness” score). 13 countries score below 20, primarily those on the FATF danger lists. TI comments that the global average score is only 43.
