“The visible results of our efforts deserve high praise from authoritative international organizations:
In this year’s “Rule of Law Index” of the World Justice Project, in such a leading factor as freedom from corruption, Georgia ranked 33rd in the world, among the top 20 in Europe, and in Eastern Europe and It took the first place in the Central Asia region.
According to the “Global Competitiveness Report” of the World Economic Forum, in the ranking of corruption control, Georgia ranks 20th in the world, 11th in Europe, and 2nd among the post-Soviet countries, ahead of many EU and NATO member states.
Georgia ranks 41st among 180 countries in the “Corruption Perception Index” of “Transparency International” and is the leader in the region.
