Jordan ranked first in the Arab world and 57 globally on the Global Corruption Index 2021.

Swiss risk management company Global Risk Profile (GRP) released the Global Corruption Index 2021 which measures corruption risk levels in 196 countries.

Jordan received a score of 38.04 on a 0-100 scale, while the risk of corruption in the country was evaluated as ‘low.’

The top three countries in the list with ‘very low’ corruption risk levels are Finland, Norway, and New Zealand.

Meanwhile North Korea, Syria, and Libya are ranked at the bottom, with ‘very high’ risks.

The results of the Global Corruption Index (GCI) display the corruption risk exposure deriving from both the public and private sectors. The GCI also includes issues related to white collar crimes and more specifically to money-laundering and terrorism financing.

The GCI relies on various methods for collecting data reflecting the variety of ways available to estimate corruption.
