Transparency International has said that Iraq has risen slightly in its global Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).
From at total of 167 countries, Iraq came in at number 161, slightly better than last year’s position of 170 out of 175 countries, and tying with Libya.
This result puts it ahead of countries such as Afghanistan, North Korea, and Somalia (which came last, again), and just behind Venezuela, Guinea-Bissau, and Haiti.
Denmark came first, again, followed by Finland, Sweden and New Zealand.
The Corruption Perceptions Index is a composite index, drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions.
