"... In the Arachnys report, Britain ranked No. 2 behind the United States, with an overall score of 83 out of a possible 100. It fared best in the areas of corporate transparency (perfect score of 100), but received scores of 75 and 74 for litigation and media transparency, respectively. Other countries that received high overall scores were Ecuador, France, Albania, and Australia. Where the findings showed the most improvement is in Latin America, where “quite a lot of new platforms and portals were put online,” says Ed Long, head of research for Arachnys. Venezuela, Brazil, and Ecuador “all have made improvements to their public data,” he says."
