Kyrgyzstan improves its anti-corruption indexes in the ranking of Transparency International

Bishkek, December 9 / Kabar /. In the ranking of Transparency International Kyrgyzstan managed to improve its anti-corruption by 41 points, Public Prosecutor Indira Dzholdubaeva said during the scientific-practical conference "United against Corruption for Development, Peace and Security" in Bishkek, dedicated to the International Day Against Corruption.

"Kyrgyzstan, recognizing the United Nations Convention against Corruption as an important instrument of international law, was among the first countries to sign and ratify it by the Law of the Kyrgyz Republic. Under the law the General Prosecutor's Office of the Kyrgyz Republic is responsible for its implementation. The UN General Assembly every year brings new trends and calls for the fight against corruption. That's why today’s our scientific conference is held under a renewed UN slogan for the upcoming 2017 - "United in the fight against corruption in the interests of development, peace and security" (Breaking the chain of corruption – last year)," she explained.

In addition, she said that in recent years it became a good tradition in Kyrgyzstan to hold various meetings, conferences, seminars and other special events to mark the International Anti-Corruption Day.

Also, the public prosecutor said that over the past four years on the Corruption Perceptions Index, published annually by the Transparency International, Kyrgyzstan has managed to improve its ranking.

"Starting from the 164th position in 2012, Kyrgyzstan ranked 123rd in 2015 (out of 167 countries, by gaining 28 points). Thus, Kyrgyzstan has entered the top five countries that dynamically improve its position in recent years. According to the annual reports of Freedom House, Kyrgyzstan is 38th in the ranking of the level of freedom in 2016. It is worth noting, in the CIS countries Kyrgyzstan is the most free country, giving primacy only Ukraine and Moldova. These positive assessments of international organizations are given to our country not easily. The daily hard work of our entire system of state bodies, our entire society is behind this," the prosecutor said.
