India, China ranked 72 out of 180 in corruption rankingsNovember 14th, 2007 - 1:48 am ICT by admin
The Chinese mainland scored an average of 3.5 this year, an increase of 0.2 from last year. The country ranked 70 out of the last year’s 163 countries and regions.
Tsinghua University professor Ren Jianming said the ranking is basically in accordance with the status quo of corruption in China and immediate big improvements on the index are not likely in the short term.
“The index is mainly affected by the subjective perception of a country. Once a perception has formed it takes time to change it,” The China Daily quoted Professor Jianming, as saying.
Peking University professor Li Chengyan said that though the slight increase shows international recognition of China’s efforts to curb corruption, the comparatively low score implies a belief that corruption is still rampant. (ANI)
