(BNS) The number of people considering corruption a very serious problem in the country is decreasing in Lithuania, says Mindaugas Lingė, an adviser to President Dalia Grybauskaitė, commenting on the results of the recent “Corruption Map 2014″ survey commissioned by the Special Investigation Service.

“The Presidential Office has been introduced to the initial results of the survey and they are definitely good,” Lingė told the Žinių Radijas news radio on Tuesday.

In his words, the number of people considering corruption a very serious problem in Lithuania has dropped to 48 percent in 2014, compared to 67 percent in 2011.

The survey showed that the change towards better evaluation is taking place faster among businessmen and civil servants rather than among other residents, Lingė said.

He also paid special attention to the fact that the number of people considering courts to be very corrupt has almost halved to 35 percent this year from 64 percent in 2011.
