China continues its ranking at the bottom of the Corruption Perceptions Index.

The latest report from the German-based Transparency International (TI) shows that of the 175 participating countries China ranks 100 thus placing it at the lower end of the index together with other countries such as Mexico, Suriname, Moldova, Niger, and Argentina.

The Corruption Perceptions Index ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be.

A country or territory’s score indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean).

A country or territory’s rank indicates its position relative to the other countries and territories in the index.

“Countries at the bottom need to adopt radical anti-corruption measures in favor of their people. Countries at the top of the index should make sure they don’t export corrupt practices to underdeveloped countries,” Transparency International noted.
