Egypt improves rating in 2018 Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index: Egypt’s rating in the 2018 Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index inched up to 35 points this year from 32. The widely followed index, designed to give a sense of public sector corruption, rates countries on a scale of zero (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). This year’s index covers 180 countries and territories.

Egypt is ranked 105 out of the 180 countries surveyed. The top scorers in MENA were the UAE and Qatar. The worst scorers: Syria, Yemen and Libya.
