What can Algeria do to at least reduce its corruption in Algeria to its barest minimum? Read on to get an idea of how to fight corruption in Algeria . Algeria as a nation of the world has been in the corruption spotlight for quite some time now. The way Transparency Internationals Corruption Perception Index ranks Algeria is more than enough proof of this.

There are so many accusations of corruption among high ranking government officials of bribe taking before the award of contracts. There are also fingers pointing at the country’s oil and gas sector. These are only but two of such cases of finger pointing.

Reforms
Corruption in Algeria was the main driver of the Arab uprisings so reforms are needed most especially in the judicial and administrative sectors. The implementation of these reforms should be accelerated by the authorities in other to ensure that trade contracts are enforced. A situation where contractors bribe those in authority to award contracts to them or approve those that were not carried out to the letter is giving the notion of sharing the ‘National Cake’ to most Algerian citizens.

Control
The authorities need to make sure that public accounts are brought under strict control to ensure a guarantee of real transparency. This will ensure proper public finance management which in turn creates a system that is vey result oriented. In essence, let all the resources nature has endowed the Algerian nation with work for the Algerian people. This is what equal rights is all about in any civilised society.

Health
The authorities have to overhaul the health sector completely so as to bring affordable basic health to the doorstep of the common Algerian man. A healthy population is a very productive population. By making sure that health is available to all, the authorities can even increase national GDP. When people are healthy, they have overcome one of the most important challenges that drain their pockets of money.

Education/Employment
The idle mind is the devil’s workshop is a true saying. The authorities have to provide the populace with timely, relevant and affordable education. They also have to make sure graduates of this functioning educational system they are to create will get gainful employment once they graduate. The youth are one of the most important aspects of every society. As leaders of tomorrow, they have to be positively engaged and carried along so they do not resort to youth restiveness. When their mind is busy and not idle, the devil does not have any workshop to work from.
The corruption problems of Algeria as a nation are so many. The institutional framework that guides investments does not seem to be working.

Nevertheless, if the authorities will begin to look at the issues raised here then it is a start. They can start from here and continue to improve on their performance as they go along and one day, they shall wake up to the realization that they have done most of the work. After all, Rome was not built in one day.
