In this year's ranking, Vietnam has achieved strong growth in the income equality index, up 33 places compared to 2021, to 42nd place. Vietnam also increased 18 places to 39th position on the investment attraction index. Vietnam performed well in the indicators of satisfaction with public services (15th) and gender equality (27th). Overall, Vietnam's strong performance in the attractive markets (34th) and human development assistance (43rd) indexes shows that the Government of Vietnam has focused on progressing the national economy, while ensuring a more equitable society.

Drawing on more than 50 open data sources, CGGI is built on principles and is data driven to help understand the capabilities and outcomes of 104 Governments worldwide and nearly 90% of the world's population. This index focuses on 7 pillars: leadership and foresight; strong laws and policies; strong institutions; financial management; attractive market; global influence and reputation; and support of human development. CGGI's rigorous methodology was developed in consultation with government officials, leaders, governance experts and researchers.

European countries hold a prominent place in the Top 20, with Finland topping the ranking and Switzerland taking second place. Countries in the Asia-Pacific region are in the Top 20, including Singapore (3rd); New Zealand (9th); Japan (15th); Australia (17th) and South Korea (joint 19th).

This is the second year that the CIG has released the index, following its previous release in 2021. This year's index particularly highlights the importance of the rule of law, intellectual property rights and corruption prevention, as well as assessing the impact of governance capacity on a country's ability to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CGGI is the world's most comprehensive index used to measure the performance of national governments. This index shows the importance of investing in enhancing the capacity of civil servants and the apparatus they operate to build a better and more sustainable future./.
