Mexico's '2016-2018 Open Government Partnership Action Plan'

Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Mexico's Foreign Ministry (SRE) hosted the inauguration of the meeting to define Mexico’s 2016-2018 Open Government Partnership (OGP) Action Plan. The purpose of the meeting is to achieve a high-level commitment among the three branches of government, autonomous bodies, and civil society.

This is the third action plan put together under the leadership of the Tripartite Technical Secretariat (the OGP’s governing body in Mexico), composed of the Civil Society Coordinating Committee, the National Institute for Transparency, the Federal Institute for Access to Information and Personal Data Protection, and the Mexican government.

An essential part of the Action Plan is that the commitments that are adopted align the principles of open government with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are:

  • Human Rights and strengthening the rule of law
  • Gender Equality
  • National Anti-corruption System
  • Governance of natural resources and climate change
  • Poverty and Inequality
  • Public services

The inauguration was led by the Secretary for Public Administration, Virgilio Andrade, and the Undersecretary for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights of the Foreign Ministry, Miguel Ruiz Cabañas. Participants included representatives of autonomous bodies and civil society organizations.
