Qatar has ranked 33rd out of 180 countries globally in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) for 2018. 
The country scored 62 points, maintaining its second place in the index amongst the Arab countries and the Middle East, while more than two-thirds of countries got less than 50 points in the index for this year.
The Transparency International (TI) said that Qatar’s high ranking is strongly linked to the levels of human development, effective public administration, high levels of GDP, health and education.
The CPI is issued annually by Transparency International and its announcement is always the focus of many countries and local and international organisations worldwide.
The CPI draws on 13 surveys based on expert assessments and business opinion, and its outcome is based on a number of sub-indicators issued by international organisations such as the World Bank and the World Economic Forum.
