Georgia is ahead of 13 EU member states: Spain, Italy, Poland, Malta, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Cyprus, Greece, and Bulgaria. In terms of Control of Corruption, Georgia has scored 74.04% on a scale of 100%. Georgia is the region’s leader, with only Estonia and Lithuania having better results in the post-Soviet space.

The Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) project reports aggregate and individual governance indicators for over 200 countries and territories, for six dimensions of governance:

Voice and Accountability


Political Stability and Absence of Violence

Government Effectiveness

Regulatory Quality

Rule of Law

Control of Corruption

These aggregate indicators combine the views of a large number of enterprise, citizen and expert survey respondents in industrial and developing countries.  They are based on over 30 individual data sources produced by a variety of survey institutes, think tanks, non-governmental organizations, international organizations, and private sector firms.

In the Government Effectiveness indicator, Georgia has scored 76.94% on a scale of 100%, a historic high making Georgia 37th in the world and 24th in Europe.
