Ethiopia Improves Corruption Index Rating

January 31 , 2021

Ethiopia has shown a slight improvement in the 2020 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), released by Transparency International last week. The country is currently ranked 94 out of 180 countries with a score of 38/100. The ranking is marginally better than the previous year when the country was ranked 96 and scored 37. The year before that, Ethiopia was ranked 114 with a score of 34. This year, Ethiopia shares the same rank with seven other nations including Tanzania, Brazil and Afghanistan. More than two-thirds of the countries featured on the Index scored lower than 50, with Somalia and South Sudan coming last in the rankings. The CPI rankings are determined using a composite of 13 surveys and assessments of public sector corruption, according to Transparency International, a German NGO founded in 1993.
