Open Government Partnership Asia-Pacific Regional Dialogue


Open Government Partnership Asia-Pacific Regional Dialogue

21 July 2016 to 22 July 2016

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international platform for domestic reformers committed to making their governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens. Since its launch in 2011, OGP has grown from 8 countries to 70 participating countries, with 12 from the Asia-Pacific region having joined or expressed an interest to join. 2016 presents a good opportunity for the countries developing national action plans to lay the foundation for strong implementation in the next 2 years, share their experiences, learn from each other, and inforn and inspire efforts of government and civil society reformers across the region.

The event, hosted by the Asian Development Bank in partnership with the OGP Support Unit, UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub, and IBM, is aimed at fostering collaboration and learning within the open government comm9unity in the region and supporting the network of government and civil society reformers using OGP to advance ambitious open government reforms.
