The good news is that Albania's position in the CPI has improved. The 2005 Index placed Albania 126th with a score of 2.4 out of a maximum of 10. The 2006 Index has the country in 111th place with a score of 2.6.
The bad news is that Albania still ranks as the country with the highest perceived level of corruption in the Balkans, and the the second highest level in the whole of Europe, ahead only of Belarus. (Russia is also perceived as more corrupt, but whether it counts as Europe is another matter).
