Corruption is Widespread Across Europe

by
,

According to a new report by the European Commission, the extent of corruption across Europe is “breathtaking”, costing the EU economy at least €120 billion every year. The Commission said it was the first time it has done a survey like this and the results are certainly interesting.

Respondents across the European Union were asked if they are “personally affected by corruption in daily life”, among other questions. At the top of the scale, 63 percent of people in both Spain and Greece agreed that they are affected by daily corruption. In Cyprus, the figure was 57 percent.

According to the views of those polled, the least corrupt countries in the European Union are Denmark, France and Germany. Just 3 percent of Danes feel they are affected by corruption in daily life and this figure rises slightly to 6 percent in both France and Germany.
