Perceived Transparency Ranking – Cambodia has consistently been ranked as one of the most corrupt countries in the world for a while now. According to the 2019 Corruption Perceptions Index its rank is 162 out of 180 countries and has a score of 20 of 100. It has the third lowest score in Asia Pacific and the lowest score in the ASEAN region.
