Qatar has been ranked first amongst Arab countries in combating administrative corruption, according to the Competitiveness of Arab Economies Report for 2016, issued by the Arab Monetary Fund.
Qatar topped the index, which focuses on the extent of individuals’ practice in public authority for personal gain, the extent of the spread of administrative corruption within the judiciary system, as well as all forms of corruption that impede the implementation of the business, besides measuring the state’s seriousness in fighting corruption.
“This comes as a recognition of the efforts of Qatar to maintain its advanced positions in the international indicators in combating corruption – thanks to the attention given by HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani to set the necessary legislations, the seriousness of the state in the application of rule of law, attention to institutional and transparency parameters, and the effectiveness of performance in all of the State’s institutions,” the Administrative Control & Transparency Authority said in a statement.
