Transparency and Corruption: being accountable, inclusive, and public

Further to the post above, Networkers, I just want to give you some links to follow up on the subject of Transparency:

As you can see, Australia has come in eighth position.  Don't think that this is a matter for great pride seeing Switzerland is right behind - and when one thinks of what one hears about the Swiss banking industry!  Another thing to take into account is the size of an economy - the bigger the economy the more room for corruption, perhaps.  And there we are, BEHIND Canada and The Netherlands.  Again, that hardly covers us in glory.  If you check the document below, you will find that Australia is third in the Asia-Pacific region - behind New Zealand and Singapore.  Australia, there is no room for complacency. 

Let's shine the light in 
the dark places of business, politics, governance!
