Open Data in the Public Administration of the Gulf Cooperative Council (GCC) countries.


The purpose of this forum is to bring together an international group of open data/ open government practitioners from different parts of the world to share their collective experiences and provide insights on implementing open data applications and transforming governments into open government champions. These practitioners will come from both the public and private sectors in order to obtain a wide range of inputs on the benefits and challenges of introducing open government within the public administration.

A special focus will be on introducing Open government in the GCC and identify opportunities for EIDA and other institutions in the GCC to benefit from the presentations and develop their own regional and international open government networks.
