Qatar among world’s least corrupt countries

Qatar was ranked 30th in the world out of 180 countries in the Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index 2019, advancing three positions compared to last year.
The Administrative Control and Transparency Authority (ACTA) said on Thursday that the annual index is published by Transparency International. They noted that the index is of particular interests to states, investors, developmental and rights organisations all over the world.
The index relies on 13 different institutions, as well as experts and the business communities. It uses data from international organisations such as the World Bank, World Economic Forum, International Institute for Management Development, and the Economist Intelligence Unit.
Qatar’s score of 62 was 23 points higher than the average for the Middle-East and North Africa region. The organisation noted the negative impact some of the recent developments in the region had on the countries’ score. They highlighted that Qatar was one of the top countries in the region, thanks to its efforts in transparency and combating corruption.
Qatar’s the top ranking comes despite the unjust blockade imposed on the country.
