The Kuwaiti government has worked tirelessly to improve the country's ranking in the global corruption perceptions index, said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for National Assembly Affairs Anas Al-Saleh on Wednesday.

Kuwait's anti-corruption efforts include introducing stiff legislation to boost transparency across government bodies, the minister said amid a panel discussion over global anti-corruption measures. He cited a national strategy the Gulf state has unveiled to root out corruption, in addition to an anti-corruption watchdog to ensure that no nefarious practices would go unpunished.

The European Research Center for Anti-Corruption and State-Building has introduced new indices to measure corruption, according to its communication and programs manager Elizabeth Miszta. Such measures are necessary to curb corruption levels, she said, pointing out that the scale of corruption is impossible to measure with complete accuracy, but government statistics can be used to reach a well-informed estimate.
