Liberia, January 25, 2017----The Center for Transparency and Accountability in Liberia (CENTAL), the local chapter of Transparency International (TI) is pleased to release results of the 2016 Corruption Perception Index.
Liberia has ranked 90/176 with a CPI score of 37, showing no progress since a decline from 41 in 2012 to 37 in 2015 and 2016. While we outperformed our immediate neighbors (Ivory coast, Sierra Leone and Guinea) who scored 34, 30 and 27 respectively, we still remain among poor performers globally. This year, 176 countries and territories are included in the index, eight (8) more than in 2015. Findings of the research show that corruption still remains a major challenge globally and that countries need to do more to entrench integrity and accountability.
