Transparency International has announced the Corruption Perceptions Index for 2022.
Among 180 countries, Uzbekistan ranked 126th with 31 points. The republic climbed 14 lines in the ranking compared to 2021 (140th).
According to the Anti-Corruption Agency of Uzbekistan, the country has recorded growth rates in this index for the last 6 years (from 22 points in 2017 to 31 points in 2022) and is among the countries of the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region that are systematically implementing anti-corruption reforms.
Transparency International noted that the global average remains unchanged for over a decade at just 43 out of 100. More than two-thirds of countries score below 50, while 26 countries have fallen to their lowest scores yet. Despite concerted efforts and hard-won gains by some, 155 countries have made no significant progress against corruption or have declined since 2012.
