Afghanistan has gained sixteen points, Bhutan six, India four, Maldives four (2017–2022), Nepal seven and Pakistan none. Bangladesh has the third lowest of 31 Asia-Pacific countries, bettered only by Afghanistan (24), Cambodia and Myanmar (23) and North Korea (17). If the current trend continues, Bangladesh has the potential to fall to the very bottom of South Asia.
