Italy has long been perceived as one of the most corrupt countries in Europe. But the latest edition of the annual study shows things have in fact improved once again this year.
Italy gained two points once again in Transparency International’s 2019 Corruption Perception Index (CPI). Released on Thursday, the study ranks perceptions of official corruption levels around the world.
This year’s result continues a trend of gradually improving results in the study year on year. However, analysts say they’ll be watching Italy closely as they say the trend could easily go into reverse.
