Open Government Partnership Global Summit 2018

Open Government Partnership Global Summit 2018

As lead co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), The Prime Minister of Georgia, Mr. Giorgi Kvirikashvili, will host the 5th OGP Global Summit in Tbilisi, Georgia, on July 17-19, 2018. Representatives from more than 70 countries are expected to attend, including heads of state and ministers, public officials, members of parliament, local authorities, civil society representatives, international organizations, researchers, and journalists.

 The Summit will provide an excellent opportunity for leaders from OGP’s 75 participating countries, local governments, and beyond to exchange ideas on how they are making their governments more transparent, accountable, and responsive to citizens. It will also be an opportunity for practitioners and experts representing different fields, sectors, and regions from around the world to talk about goals, challenges, and best practices in the implementation of open government reforms, inspire their peers, and push the open government agenda forward to address new challenges and improve the lives of citizens around the world.

Continuing the spirit of co-creation, the agenda for the Global Summit will be based on an open call for proposals.  Starting   March 5, 2018, members of the OGP community are invited to submit their ideas for sessions and   speakers  here. We are   inviting proposals on the following priority thematic tracks identified by the current co-chairs of       OGP – the Government of   Georgia and Mukelani Dimba: Civic Engagement, Anti-corruption, and Public Service  Delivery. Other topics will also   be considered for an open track.
