PNG to find out its ranking next Wednesday

PNG will find out where it is ranked in the world when the 2016 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) is revealed by Transparency International PNG (TIPNG) next week Wednesday.

The CPI ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. It was launched in 1995.

Countries and territories are ranked on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). The ranking indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption.

Information gathered is taken from a combination of surveys and assessments of corruption gathered from different data sources.

The 2015 CPI put PNG at 139 out of a 168 countries and territories. PNG was ranked 145 out of 175 in the 2014 CPI. PNG has scored 25 for the last 4 years since 2012.

The event will take place at the Grand Papua Hotel in Port Moresby and will start at 2pm.
