OGP: Hillary Clinton welcomes transparency efforts

Speaking at the Open Government Partnership yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reaffirmed the United States intention to join the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), generally praising the open government initiative.

Clinton spoke about the role of technology as one of the keys to open government and to increasing citizens’ engagement with their leaders.

She added that countries with open governments will succeed in the 21st century, while those that “hide from public view and dismiss the ideals of openness” will have increasing trouble maintaining peace and security.
