NDI Conference in Support of Montenegro’s participation in the Open Government Partnership

In her opening remarks at an event organized by the National Democratic Institute on June 7, 2022 to support Montenegro’s participation in the Open Government Partnership (OGP), Ambassador Reinke highlighted the value of the platform in advocating and tracking the implementation of concrete reform commitments in key areas of focus for Montenegro’s EU accession process – democracy, anticorruption, transparency, and accountability. She added that Montenegro’s participation in OGP – and particularly its focus on corruption prevention via domestic transparency initiatives – will help advance Montenegro’s EU membership efforts, while improving public trust in the country’s institutions and supporting a merit-based professional civil service. It is vital that government delivers benefits for all citizens.

OGP is a global initiative which brings together government and civil society representatives and members of the public to advance accountable and transparent government.
