Corruption is a serious global problem that the majority of countries are dealing with. But, according to a watchdog group, many countries are not taking serious actions against stopping corruption and they are running too slow against corruption. On Wednesday, the watchdog group concluded that minimal efforts can’t stop corruption from a country.
Recently, the 2017 Corruption Perceptions Index was revealed by the Transparency International which actually showed some disturbing information. The Berlin-based organization said that the efforts made by the major countries are not enough to stop or remove corruption. While stopping corruption is a time taking action, six long years have already wasted away because of the minimal efforts put by the countries.
