Organizing a program here today, Transparency International Nepal informed about the situation of the world and Nepal in CPI.

"The import and export decreased in 2022 as compared to 2021. Nepal got more points in the survey of World Economic Forum due to a decline in corruption relating to import and export", said Padmini Pradhananga, Chairperson of TI Nepal.

Denmark is in the first position with 90 points while Somalia is in the last position with 12 points. Of the 180 countries, 58 countries have received more than 50 points.

Six different international organizations --- World Bank, World Economic Forum, Global Insight, The Bertelsmann Foundation, World Justice, and Varieties of Democratic Project (V-Dem) surveyed CPI in Nepal.

The survey was carried out on various topics, including work performance of public office holders, access of civil society in information, import, export, public service, contract, judicial decision, trade, business, corruption, bribe, misuse of a public post by the representatives of government, parliament, judiciary and security bodies for personal interest.
