Liberian Govt, OGP To Hold Talks

MONROVIA, April 9 (LINA) - A high-level delegation from the Open Government Partnership (OGP) in Washington, D. C. is expected to hold talks with officials of the Liberian government next week.

The delegation will also meet with civil society representatives and donor organizations, among others, according to a release issued in Monrovia Friday.

The Deputy Information Minister Andrew Tehmeh made the disclosure when he addressed the Ministry of Information regular press conference at the ministry recently.

Discussions on how Liberians can harness the great potential of open government to help meet their most pressing needs will be high on the agenda, he pointed out.

According to Tehmah, the delegation is headed by Sanjay Pardhan, Chief Executive Officer of OGP, who will also hold discussions with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

Meanwhile, Information Minister Eugene Nagbe has said Government “is very excited” to be meeting with the OGP team and looks forward to discussing how government can build on progress made in creating greater transparency and accountability.

Nagbe said he believes that the OGP provides a vital framework for government and civil society to work together to create commitments that improve people’s lives.

The release also quotes him as saying “government is especially keen to discuss how it can institutionalize open government in Liberia and develop transformative reforms in the new OGP National Action Plan.”

The OGP comprises 75 national governments, 15 sub-national governments, seven multilateral organizations and thousands of civil society organizations.

It was formally launched on September 20, 2011.

Liberia joined the OGP in 2011 and has created two national action plans with 26 commitments ranging from access to information and public accountability to civil participation.
