Transparency International has said that Iraq has risen one place in its global Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).
From at total of 175 countries, Iraq came in at number 170, slightly better than last year’s position of 171.
This result puts it ahead of countries such as Afghanistan, South Sudan, and Somalia (which came last), and just behind Libya, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
Denmark came first, again, followed by New Zealand, Finland and Sweden.
The Corruption Perceptions Index is a composite index, drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions.
