New Zealand has been named the world’s least corrupt country for the third year in a row.

New Zealand claimed the title alongside Denmark and Finland, with a score of 88 out of 100.

Corruption is a form of dishonesty or a criminal offense that is done by an important organization – often governments.

The scores of 180 countries and territories are based on experts’ opinions and perceptions of governments and city councils.

New Zealand has a group called Transparency International New Zealand. It is run by former MP Anne Tolley. She said that “international recognition of low levels of corruption is vital for New Zealand’s trade-dependent economy.”

The 2021 results showed that corruption levels remain at a standstill worldwide, with 86 percent of countries making little to no progress in the last 10 years. South Sudan finished last with a score of 11.
