Taiwan ranked the 2nd freest country in Asia: global freedom report


Taiwan was ranked the second freest country in Asia, among 38 others in the region. Taiwan was rated as "free" on the list of 210 countries and territories.


The rankings were rated based on their people's access to political rights and civil liberties, according to the latest edition of the annual Freedom in the World report.


Japan tops the list in Asia with an aggregate score of 96 points, followed by Taiwan with 94 points, and Mongolia with 84 points.


The 2021 freedom report was compiled by the United States-based non- governmental organization Freedom House.


"Taiwan's vibrant and competitive democratic system has allowed three peaceful transfers of power between rival parties since 2000, and protections for civil liberties are generally robust," Freedom House wrote.


The 2021 edition of Freedom in the World report said the events of 2020 marked the 15th consecutive year of decline in global freedom.
