DILI, 07 february 2024 (TATOLI) – Timor-Leste has once again succeeded to improve its performance on the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) in 2023 as the country ranked 70 out of 180 countries.

In a report released by ‘Transparency International’ on january 30, Timor-Leste’s rank was increased to 70th from 77th last year.

In the Asia Pacific region, Timor-Leste is recognized as one of the countries that have made steady progress in the area of anti-corruption.

Over the last five years, Timor-Leste has risen seven places in the CPI, and has stood out even more in the last 11 years, with a total increase of ten places. This result keeps the country in the top half of the least corrupt countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

Among the ASEAN countries, only Singapore (5) and Malaysia (57) rank higher than Timor-Leste and among the nine CPLP member countries, only Cape Verde (30), Portugal (35) and São Tomé and Príncipe (67) rank higher than Timor-Leste.

The CPI is the oldest and most comprehensive corruption measurement tool in the world, analyzing the levels of corruption in the public sector of 180 countries and territories, scoring them from 0 (perceived as very corrupt) to 100 (very transparent), based on the perception of experts and business executives about the levels of corruption in the public sector.
