Argentina Joins OGP, Becomes 58th Member

6 November 2012

Argentina has committed to join the Open Government Partnership, bringing OGP membership to 58.

A short notice posted on the OGP website Nov. 6 links to the brief letter dated Oct. 29 from the Argentine government.

Argentina will become the 58th country to participate in OGP, and the 14th from Latin America.

“OGP welcomes Argentina’s letter of intent to participate, and looks forward to working with government and civil society stakeholders there as they develop their action plan over the coming months,” says the OGP announcement.

Seventy-nine countries are qualified under OGP criteria to join the international effort. Members commit to the Declaration of Principles and agree to prepare, with public input, a national action plan making specific commitments to expand open government.
