Open Government Partnership – Australia
Interim Working Group workshop
On Friday 7 October 2016, the Interim Working Group held a workshop at the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s offices in Sydney.
The Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation, the Hon. Angus Taylor MP, attended the morning session and heard from civil society members about their priorities for the open government agenda. Assistant Minister Taylor noted his enthusiasm in seeing the Open Government Partnership operate as a catalyst for action in his areas of responsibility, including the open data agenda and digital transformation of government.
In the afternoon, members discussed the upcoming public consultation on the draft National Action Plan. Government and civil society members agreed to work together during this period to raise awareness about the Open Government Partnership and seek input from a broad and diverse range of stakeholders on the draft Plan.
