Malaysia has registered an improvement in the world corruption ranking for 2023.

Malaysia’s score in the Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2023 has rebounded for the first time in three years, scoring 50 out of 100 points.

This improves the country’s ranking to the 57th spot for 2023 out of 180 countries, an improvement from the 61st position it held in 2022.

The result was announced by Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M) president Dr Muhammad Mohan.

The CPI uses a scale of zero to 100, where zero is perceived to be highly corrupted and 100 is perceived to be very clean.

“Although there is a rebound, there is much more that can be done (to improve the country’s score).

“What this means is don’t be too happy, (an increase of) three points (compared to the previous year’s score) is okay,” Muhammad said at the briefing today.
