[www.inewsguyana.com] – Guyana and Mexico today held discussions on the upcoming Open Government Partnership Global Summit to be held in Mexico.
Ivan Robero Sierra Medel, Mexican Ambassador to Guyana called on Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo to discuss the upcoming forum at which Guyana is expected to participate.
Ambassador Medel explained in the meeting with the Prime Minister that the principles of transparency, accountability, citizen participation and innovation are now recognised globally as essential tools in the creation of policies that foster inclusive development and strengthen governance.
Mexico, he noted, is the current Lead Chair and has worked to promote a shared vision that fosters openness, accountability and good governance t the national and international level.
The Open Government Partnership’s Global Summit provides a wonderful opportunity for members of the open government movement to consolidate and build momentum, to reflect on what is working and what is not, and to lay out a framework for further co-operation, exchange and action.
This year special attention will be paid to the role, open government, can play in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals of the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
