Founded in 2011, the Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international, voluntary effort to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, encourage civic participation, fight corruption, and enhance government responsiveness to people. By participating in OGP, a country can deliver a strong message to its citizens and the international community that it commits itself to strengthening openness, transparency, accountability and anti-corruption towards achieving the prosperity for its country. Currently, Vietnam is non-eligible for OGP; however, it is not too far away from meeting the minimum eligibility criteria. Towards Transparency (TT) in Vietnam has been promoting OGP as a platform for government, civil society and the private sector to collaborate around the key open government issues and principles in Vietnam.
