The State Chancellery of Moldova had established a Permanent Dialogue Mechanism (PDM) on the open government agenda. Note: information about PDM will be soon available on the official web page of the State Chancellery too.
Having such a mechanism in place is a basic minimum requirement for a country which is a member of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), as stated in the Articles of Governance. Moldova joined the OGP back in 2012. Having a PDM helps strengthen the co-creation of the National Action plans on Open Government (NAPs), deepens legitimacy, ensures that both the Government and CSOs are part of the implementation of the NAPs along with Monitoring and Evaluation. The PDM is established and approved through the Order of the State Chancellery (GovernmentOrder_PDM in Ro)
Moldovan representatives had its first meeting on June 4th, 2018. Here are the main take away from the first meeting.
The PDM brings 4 representatives from the Government and 4 from Civil Society and is co-chaired in the same manner, by the Government and Civil Society, following the approach of the Open Government Partnership (OGP).
State Chancellery, represented by Adrian Ermurachi (Deputy State Secretary) is co-chairing the PDM together with the Open Government Institute, represented by Veronica Cretu.
