Bangladesh has been placed at the 12th from the bottom among 180 countries after slipping one step lower in global corruption perception index (CPI) in 2022. 

Bangladesh has scored 25 out of 100, which is the 12th lowest among 180 countries, in the CPI prepared by the Berlin-based Transparency International (TI).

Bangladesh’s rank from top is 147th among 180 countries, same as 2021, TI reveals.

The index also said the 2022 score is one point lower than 2021, 2020, 2019 and 2018.

It has ranked Bangladesh as the second most corrupt country in South Asia after Afghanistan.

Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) Executive Director Iftekharuzzaman presented the report at a press conference in the capital on Tuesday.

Bangladesh's score is among 122 countries that scored below 50 which are considered as having a ‘serious corruption problem’, he said.
