Singapore ranked fourth least corrupt country

Singapore has been ranked the fourth least corrupt country in the Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2019.

The CPI, which started in 1995, ranks the countries by its perceived levels of public sector corruption.

Countries are then given a score from a scale of 0, for highly corrupt, to 100, for very clean. The Republic tied the fourth spot with Sweden and Switzerland with a score of 85.

Topping the list was Denmark and New Zealand - both with 87, followed by Finland in third place with a score of 86.

Singapore is the only Asian country in the top 10, out of 180 countries.
