Lithuania has been listed 48th among 176 countries on the Corruption Perception Index published by the non-governmental organization Transparency International, moving up two positions since last year.

Sergejus Muravjovas, director of the Lithuanian office of Transparency International, says that business representatives gave a better view of Lithuania's anti-corruption environment this year, as compared with 2011. However, Lithuania has not progressed in the general context of the world and the European Union (EU).

"We have rather good anti-corruption laws, but there's a lack of due attention and capacities to implement them," Muravjovas said in a press release.

In the 2012 index, Lithuania received 54 points out of 100, ranking 48th among 176 rated countries.

On the scale, 0 means a fully corrupt country and 100 a very transparent country. Lithuania was 50th among 183 countries in 2011.

The top countries on the index include Denmark, Finland, and New Zealand (90 points), while Afghanistan, North Korea, and Somalia are on the bottom of the list with 8 points.
