1.        Background

The OGP is a global effort to make governments better, that is, more transparent, effective and accountable, with institutions that empower citizens and are responsive to their aspirations (citizen engagement). The OGP is a multilateral initiative bringing together 65 governments; its aim is to secure concrete commitments from governments in order to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. The Government of Malta is committed to the Open Government Partnership’s (OGP) principles and has been a member since 2011.

2.        Consultation Questions

From the submissions received for the Public Consultation carried out from 28 March to 14 April 2017 on the Third National Action Plan, respondents were asked to prioritise these grand challenges. The majority recommended the following Grand Challenges as Priority: of the respondents did so. However, they both agreed on which are the top two priorities:

1. Improving Public Services

2. Increasing Public Integrity

For this reason, it is being recommended to focus on these two grand challenges for Malta’s forthcoming Action Plan.

As has already been discussed with OGP Desk, a second public consultation session was suggested following the 1st consultation. This is aimed at raising more awareness amongst the Public and Civil Society on OGP whilst seeking more input from the public. This consultation will be considered as the final consultation before the launch of the 3rd NAP.
