Since 2011, Armenia has slowly but steadily advanced in fighting corruption. In 2014, it ranked 94 (of 175) in the Transparency International`s Corruption Perception Index. In its latest strategic paper on corruption, as of April 2014, the government put emphasis on fighting it in education, state revenue, police and health care. Judiciary, even though majority of citizens and many international observers perceived it as the most corrupt, was not of the highest priority. True, tax and customs, or other revenue offices deserved to be among priorities. But even in that field, the illicit secret ties that link those having political and those having economic power, as a powerful generator of corruption, might not on the longer run be easily dismantled without further, simultaneous,
democratization of politics and liberalization of economy.
