• Analysis “Corruption Perceptions Index 2021“, 2022. The results show that Latvia’s score has increased by 2 points compared to 2020, rising to 59 (out of 100). Although this increase can be seen as a step in the right direction, Latvia’s CPI results have long lagged behind those of other European Union and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries. Moreover, this increase does not inspire confidence that the target of 64 points in 2024 and 67 points in 2027, as set in the National Development Plan 2021-2027 (NDP), will be achieved.
