Transparency International has said that Iran has risen slightly in its global Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).
From at total of 167 countries, Iran came in at number 130, slightly better than last year’s position of 133 out of 175 countries, and tying with Cameroon, Nepal, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Ukraine.
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.
