Islamabad : The Transparency International (TI) has declared that Pakistan is the only country among the five SAARC members that improved its Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) score.
The other four countries scored the same or less points as compared to the score in 2014.
TI Pakistan said that the CPI score for Pakistan had again increased by one point to 30, and the country’s rank had improved by three, reports Dawn.
