With MEPI’s Support, Morocco Joins the Open Government Partnership

On April 26, The Kingdom of Morocco joined the Open Government Partnership (OGP), an international initiative that secures commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance.  Through a partnership with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, MEPI supported the Moroccan government’s initiative to establish and implement a National Action Plan for open government, increasing transparency, accountability, and responsiveness to citizens, as well as constructive relationships with civil society organizations.  MEPI continues to advance open governance and transparency across the region, notably in Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia.
