Open Government

Finland has decided to apply for membership in the Open Government Partnership Initiative (OGP). The OGP was launched in New York on the 29th of November 2011. The global OGP-initiative aims at promoting more transparent, effective and accountable public administration. The goal is to develop dialogue between citizens and administration and to enhance citizen engagement. The OGP aims at concrete commitments from participating countries to promote transparency, to fight corruption, to citizen participation and to the use of new technologies.

To join Finland will have to deliver a national action plan on how to reach the targets. The action plan will be drafted by engaging citizens and civil society organisations. Finland can officially join the partnership in March 2013.

The Finnish Ministry of Finance has set up a co-operation project to draft the national action plan and to dialogue and engage citizens and civil society organisations.
