Sweden is internationally recognized as a country that has a low level of corruption. The latest survey by Transparency International ranks Sweden as the third least corrupt country in the world. And yet, suspected corruption continues to be reported in the media. Cases are brought before Swedish courts, and people are convicted of bribery.
Corruption exists at all levels of society, and can affect both public and private companies.
We need to continue to work:
· To increase awareness of the risks of corruption
· To promote that more and more entities cooperate in the fight against corruption
· To ensure that collective efforts against corruption are as effective as possible
In our initiative "Together Against Corruption" - we continue to showcase examples, and support all serious actors in the work against corruption.
