Americas Gets Slammed in Corruption Perceptions Index

A new report from Transparency International — a global movement of people dedicated to the eradication of corruption — shows that the Americas is still one of the most corrupt regions on Earth, despite making some progress.

Of the 176 countries listed in the report, Venezuela, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Paraguay, Mexico, Honduras, Ecuador, and Dominican Republic all sit somewhere in the bottom 50.

The report states that any nation scoring below 50 out of 100 indicates that governments are failing to tackle corruption. The average score for Latin America was 44.

“Authorities in every country should ramp up their efforts to stop powerful corporate leaders and public officials from getting away with acts of Grand Corruption with impunity,” advises Transparency International.
