Overview of corruption and anti-corruption in Bolivia
Please provide an overview of corruption and anti-corruption in Bolivia
Bolivia has undertaken significant efforts to enhance transparency. Evo Morales declared ‘zero tolerance’ against corruption and his government has created an institutional and legal framework that appears robust,. Yet, despite these positive initiatives, Bolivia still performs below global and regional averages in most governance areas, including corruption. The lack of capacity and resources undermine new institutions, while low salaries, lack of training and a burdensome bureaucracy continue to create opportunities and incentives for corruption.
