Italy climbs 8 places in 2015 global transparency ranking

Secured 17th spot, up from 25th in 2014

(ANSA) - Rome, December 9 - Italy has climbed eight places in a global transparency ranking, Italy's Civil Service Minister Marianna Madia announced Wednesday.
    The country secured 17th spot in the 2015 'Global Open Data Index', which assesses the state of open government data around the world.
    This marked a significant improvement on 2014, when Italy came in 25th position in the ranking.
    "The aim is to enter the top 10 most transparent countries in 2016," Madia wrote on Twitter.
    By Christmas, a 'Freedom of Information Act' decree, which will allow members of the public to access government information, will come into force, she said.
