Switzerland is third on the list, ranked equally with Finland, Sweden and Singapore. The top two are Denmark and New Zealand.

But there is still room for improvement, says Transparency International. It could do more to fight money laundering and protecting whistle blowers.

The most corrupt countries are Syria and South Sudan.

The United States is down at 22 and the UK is at 11.
