Corruption Perceptions Index 2012 / UAE on 27th position, Germany 13th

corruptionindexI have seen the Corruption Perceptions Index 2012 and was quite impressed that the UAE is in the 27th position. I had expected that Germany would be quite forward with the 13th but also not think of Denmark in first place.

Kuwait is coming in on 66th and the Philippines on the 105th out of 174 ranks.Well i did honestly not think that Italy is in front of the Philippines

The last ones are Somalia,Afghanistan and North Korea which somehow is understandable,,,

Best Middle Eastern Country is Qatar on the 26th rank.
