Tbilisi. Members of the Georgian Parliament and representatives of local and international organizations discussed ideas for the third, 2018-2019 Open Parliament Action Plan, including those gathered through public consultations throughout Georgia and a student contest titled Your Idea for Open Parliament.
''The ideas are aimed at strengthening transparent and participatory legislative processes in Georgia.
Georgia has many successes to showcase as it finds itself in this international spotlight. A recent report from OGP’s independent monitor shows outstanding progress on a public officials asset declaration monitoring system, citizens engagement in audit and the adoption of an environmental assessment code. The Open Budget Index for 2017 ranked Georgia 5th worldwide for fiscal transparency, ahead of many much older democracies like the UK and US'', noted Joe Powell, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Open Government Partnership Support Unit.
