Nepal second most corrupt country in South Asia: TI

Nepal is the second most corrupt country in South Asia after Afghanistan, with Bhutan being the least corrupt in the region, if one goes by the Corruption Perception Index- 2011 released by Berlin-based Transparency International (TI) today.
According to TI, the world’s most credible measure of domestic and public sector corruption, Nepal is ranked 154th with a score of 2.2. It was ranked 146th last year. The index had scored 183 countries and territories from 0 (highly corrupt) to 10 (very clean) based on perceived levels of public sector corruption.
Two thirds of the ranked countries have scored less than five.
Chairperson of TI-Nepal Bishnu Bahadur KC said that any country that scores less than three shows that corruption is all-pervasive there. In South Asia, Bhutan has scored 5.7 followed by Sri Lanka 3.3, India 3.1, Bangladesh 2.7, Maldives 2.5, Pakistan 2.5, Nepal 2.2 and Afghanistan 1.5.
The index is based on expert assessment and data from six international surveys commissioned by six independent institutions, covering issues such as access to information, bribery of public officials, kickbacks in public procurement, and the enforcement of anti-corruption laws and their outcome, action against the corrupt, political corruption, and bribery in export and import of goods.
“The cause of rampant corruption in public sectors has been attributed to the government’s lethargic performance to control the financial crime in political transition. It reflects the lack of will power and commitment on the part of the government and political parties to maintain good governance and that anti-graft bodies failed in their job,” said KC.
New Zealand ranks first with a score of 9.5, followed by Finland and Denmark. Somalia and North Korea (included in the Index for the first time) figure last on the index, with a score of 1.0 each. TI adds that protests around the world, often fuelled by corruption and economic instability, clearly show citizens feel their leaders and public institutions are neither transparent nor accountable enough.

I have observed that charges for internet degree gurus tend
to be an incredible value. For instance a full College Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits at $515/credit or $30,900.
Also American Intercontinental University Online offers a Bachelors of Business Administration with a total program
feature of 180 units and a tariff of $30,560. Online learning has made having
your degree been so cool because you can easily earn the degree through the comfort of your home and when you finish from work.
Thanks for all tips I've learned through the web-site.

Also a thing to mention is that an online business administration
program is designed for students to be able to effortlessly proceed to
bachelors degree courses. The 90 credit certification meets the other bachelor education requirements then when you earn
the associate of arts in BA online, you should have access to the newest technologies in such a field.

Some reasons w students are able to get their associate degree in business is because
they are interested in this area and want to have the general knowledge
necessary before jumping right bachelor diploma program.
Many thanks for the tips you provide in the blog.
