Chile is known for its transparency and this is reflected in international rankings that highlight the low level of corruption in the country and, particularly, its finances, due to government efforts to raise standards in administration of the state.

In Transparency International’s 2011 Corruption Perceptions Index, Chile obtained a score of 7.2 points, ranking among the 25 best-placed economies out of the 183 countries included in the Index. Chile has maintained a stable rating in recent years, leading Latin America and enjoying the transparency standards of a developed country.
