Burma Still Among World’s Most Corrupt Countries

Post by KoKo » Fri Jan 29, 2016 6:10 pm

Burma remains among the world’s most corrupt countries, according to a new index by Berlin-based graft monitor Transparency International, though it has shown marginal improvement over the past year.

Perceived corruption levels were assessed for 168 countries on a scale of zero to 100, with higher scores representing cleaner governance. Burma’s global rank—147 out of 168—was a marked improvement over last year’s 156, though the country scored only one point better than it did in the 2014 assessment.

Burma earned a score of 21 points, a slight improvement over last year’s 22. With some minor fluctuations, Burma’s score has improved by 15 points since 2012, indicating an initial upward trend that has slowed over the past two years.
