By bne IntelliNews October 27, 2010
Hungary dropped four places to the 50th position in the global corruption ranking of Transparency International. The index, which reflects the degree to which corruption is perceived to exist among public officials and politicians, decreased by 0.4pps to 4.7. The index deterioration reflects the corruption perceptions of the business sector, which is still expecting efficient measures, managing director for Transparency International Hungary, Noemi Alexa, said at a news conference according to MTI. On a regional scale, the country lagged behind Estonia (26th), Slovenia (27th), Poland (41st) and Lithuania (46th). The index is based on expert and business surveys conducted in 178 countries, which measure perceptions of corruption. It ranks the countries according to a scale of 0 (most corrupt) to 10 (least corrupt).
