Bangladesh 13th most corrupt country in the world: TIB

Update : 25 Jan 2022, 13:12

Bangladesh has been ranked thirteen among the most corrupt countries in the latest ratings by Transparency International (TI).

Bangladesh has dropped a notch and secured the 147th position globally in the latest corruption perceptions index (CPI).

On Monday, Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) announced the news at a virtual press briefing.

 Bangladesh received a score of 26 out of 100. According to the report, the score is unchanged from 2020, 2019, and 2018.

The country is also the second most corrupt in South Asia, with Afghanistan being the most corrupt, according to the survey.

The Transparency International index, which assesses 180 nations and territories based on experts' and businesspeople's perceptions of public sector corruption, utilizes a scale of 0-100, with 0 being severely corrupt and 100 being clean.

Bangladesh is ranked 13th out of 180 nations in 2021, up one position from the previous year, according to the TIB survey.

Bangladesh's overall performance, according to TIB Executive Director Iftekharuzzaman, is "disappointing" in the index.

"A failure to turn high-profile anti-corruption vows into reality is one reason for Bangladesh's poor performance," he added.
