A working group of the Georgian Anti-Corruption Council discussed its upcoming plans for 2019-2020 at the Georgian Justice Ministry today.

Old strategy documents, surveys by NGOs and international organisations and current risks were used to identify priorities of the anti-corruption policy. 

The document on the anti-corruption strategy includes an analysis of the current situation, key points on combating corruption, sector-based priorities as well as tools of the anti-corruption policy implementation.

The 2019-2020 anti-corruption draft plans are publicly available at the Justice Ministry website. 

Earlier in January, Transparency International (TI) released its annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) and Georgia came in among the best of the Eastern European and Central Asian countries, ranking 41st of 180 foreign nations.

The report studied different countries’ perceived corruption levels in the public sector. Georgia received an overall score of 58 out of 100 while 100 points indicates the lowest level of perceived corruption while 0 – its highest level.

Georgia’s score has improved by two points compared with last year’s edition of the CPI.
