Transparency International's 2017 Corruption Perception Index ranks the country 91st place out of 180 countries with score 38. (39 in 2016, 36 in 2015, 33 in 2014 and 21 in 2013).[3]

Corruption is still considered one of the most problematic factors for establishing business in Albania.[4] Even though anti-corruption legal framework of Albania is moderate, but its enforcement is compratively weak and corruption conviction rates are very low.[4]
