Indonesia's Corruption Level Still High -
Despite its efforts to reduce corruption, Indonesia still failed to fare well in Transparency International’s international index of public sector corruption. Indonesia was rated at 32 on a scale from 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean), which put it on par with countries such as the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, and Madagascar. The organization’s local chapter advised the government to follow through on investigations on high-scale corruption cases and to stop efforts to weaken the country’s anticorruption body.
