Pakistan improves by four points in corruption index
Reflecting the improvement, National Accountability Bureau Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry said the country’s anti-corruption policies were yielding better results and its ranking was improving for the past three years.
“As a result of these, the position is improving,” he remarked.
He said the Global Competitiveness Index of WEF would help improve Pakistan’s image among other nations.
In response to a question, the chairman said corruption affects the common man and they suffer when the funds supposed to be utilised for their welfare were misappropriated.
“So, the improvement in Pakistan’s ranking will be ultimately beneficial for the common man as the funds meant for their welfare and well-being will be utilised for a provision of basic facilities, including health, education and clean drinking water to them,” he said.
The chairman said the improvement in WEF report would also reflect in corruption perception index of Transparency International.
Replying to another question, Chaudhry said Pakistan’s efforts for establishing the SAARC Anti-Corruption Forum were highly appreciated by the member states.
“Pakistan is playing a leadership role among the SAARC countries in the fight against corruption,” he added.
