Georgia officially became the chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), organization bringing together 75 countries.

Georgia took over the chairmanship of the organization from France for one-year tenure.

The high-level event was held within the 72nd UN General Assembly Session in New York.

Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi kvirikashvili and the President of France Emmanuel Macron delivered speeches during the session.

Giorgi Kvirikashvili said that the chairmanship of the OGP is an honor for Georgia.

According to Prime Minister, today, OGP stands at a turning point, where each of us should take responsibility in positioning OGP as a powerful global movement for achieving openness and deeper democracy and as a countervailing force against the closing of civic space and distrust in government.

“As we communicate the key values of OGP, let’s emphasize the importance of inclusive approach to governance as an indicator of success in achieving openness. 

Georgia prides itself to be among the few countries where all branches of the government are involved in the OGP process. 

We strongly believe that a comprehensive approach at the national level has defined Georgia’s overall country performance in various directions. Hence, with the aim to foster the broadening of collective ownership of OGP domestically, we aim to encourage OGP participating countries to raise the bar of openness at the judicial, parliamentary and sub-national levels. 

I thank all countries for trusting us to serve as the Chair of the partnership and stand ready to dedicate all our resources to make our tenure a success. I believe that in the era of globalization success cannot be achieved without global partnerships and mutual support”, said the PM.
