Gov’t, USAID bring ‘lOpen Government’ initiatives to NL
by PIA

The Participatory Governance Cluster in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) presented the Open Government and Participatory Governance initiative to North Luzon (regions, I, II, III, and Cordillera) stakeholders  in a two-day regional dialogue in Baguio City, on March 9.

U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, in a message read by USAID Deputy Director for Economic Development Jenna Diallo, affirmed the partnership between the US and the Philippines wherein along with six other countries, have founded an Open Government Partnership in 2011 and which has grown rapidly to 75 member states this year and covers almost a third of the world’s population.

The USAID leads the U.S. government’s international development and disaster assistance that promotes and demonstrates democratic values to advance a free, peaceful and prosperous world.

Kim commended the Philippines’ commitment to an open, responsive and engaging government. He cited the country’s open government reforms which include Executive Order 2 that operationalizes the people’s right to information as contained in Executive Order 6 which institutionalized a complaint hotline; EO 9 that created an office in participatory governance, and EO 24 which established the participatory government cluster to enhance citizen participation in all government processes.

He also congratulated the government for the passage of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law and for the country’s effort in making it into the top spot of the Open Budget Search in Asia.

Kim said the U.S. is delighted to be the Philippines’ development partner and assured USAID’s commitment in working with the PH government in strengthening a democratic government.
