Romania is perceived as the most corrupt EU country since 2009 is the first year in the seven years where no anti-corruption progress was made, a Transparency International study, Corruption perception Index reveals.

Romania obtained this year 3.8 points of 10, an equal level as the one received last year. While Bulgaria obtained the same points as Romania, with a 0.2 increase, Greece reaches this position after a 0.9 point loss.

Transparency International declared that the stagnation is the result of a lack of strategic coordination in legislative and institutional measures which lead to an excessive vulnerability of all integration pillars.
