Georgia is ahead of all EU membership candidate countries, eight EU, and NATO member states,” the Georgian government states.
The Global Corruption Index (GCI) covers 196 countries and territories and measures the state of corruption and white collar crimes around the world. Based on as many as 42 internationally recognized variables, it encompasses two sub-indexes for both a global risk overview and a more nuanced risk assessment. The Index was designed to be in line with anti-corruption and anti-bribery legislations such as the FCPA, the UK Bribery Act, the French law Sapin II.
