Transparency is the key to the success of any public administration. It is a condition sine qua non so that we can hold the authorities accountable for their actions, meet the expectations of the citizens and work for the common good. So this is the most important prerequisite for an open, efficient public administration that people trust.
Transparency is a passport to a truly inclusive society that recognizes shared democratic values and principles. As such, it must inspire all communication plans and projects and must be based on continuous investment in capacity building and collective efforts of monitoring, learning, cooperation at all levels and innovation.
