According to the findings of the non governmental organization that is rating corruption  and transparency in 168 countries  Greece is more “clean” than last year, since it is ranked  58th  – it was 69th on 2014.

The NGO Transparency International measures corruption in the world based on economic indicators, on the opinion of experts and on «loopholes» that enable not exactly legal arrangements.

In the 2015 ranking Greece is in about the same position with Italy, Cuba, Turkey and South Africa.

On top of the list (the more transparent economies) are Denmark, Finland, Sweden  and in the bottom are North Korea and Somalia.
