Corruption Perception Index, Albania ranks 83rd

No country has a perfect score in the Corruption Perception Index 2016. This is the evaluation of the Transparency International report.

In the 2016 report, Albania ranks 83rd out of 176 countries that have been examined.

Prime Minister Edi Rama considers this new positioning as realistic and says that it is a clear indicator of the reforms of the government that he leads:

“There’s still a lot to do, but facts are facts and this evaluation is an independent and prestigious international source, which clearly speaks of the first results of our reforms in consolidating the state”.

Albanian Minister of State, Bledi Cuci considers this repositioning of 39 places since 2013 as a very positive development.

According to Mr. Cuci, the work that has been done with the reforms has had efficient results in the fight against corruption.

In the region, Albania has left behind FYROM which ranks 90th and Kosovo 95th. Serbia is ranked 72nd, Greece is ranked 69th and Montenegro is ranked 64th. The list is led by Denmark, New Zealand and Finland. /balkaneu.com/
