The Czech Republic has climbed from 53rd to 37th in the latest Corruption Perceptions Index published by watchdog Transparency International. Radim Bureš of the Czech branch of the organisation told Czech Radio that the country’s placing in the 2015 survey represented a dramatic improvement; he said this was down to increased efforts to deal with largescale corruption dating back to the government of Petr Nečas. Denmark placed best in the report, followed by Finland and Sweden.
