TIE published the results for the 2013 corruption perception index (CPI) today. Estonia has achieved 68 points, which is 4 points more than in the previous year. In general, Estonia has reached 28th place among 177 countries; Estonia was placed 32nd among 176 countries last year.
"The slight improvement in the index is positive," said Jaanus Tehver, Chair of the Board of TIE. "Howevwer, it must be noted that positive assessments were granted to Estonia largely for creating rules and regulations, not for adhering to those rules."
