Chisinau, 15 December /MOLDPRES/ - Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita today participated in the Open Government Partnership (OGP) Global Summit (OGP Global Summit). The event, which has reached its tenth edition, took place in online format and was hosted by the Republic of Korea this year, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.       

The Summit brought together heads of government from more states, representatives of the civil society, who analyzed the OGP’s progress and set new priorities for the next ten years, based on the consolidation of the civic space and involvement of the associative sector in the elaboration of public policies, combating corruption and promoting the inclusive digital innovation. 

In her speech, PM Natalia Gavrilita said that the transparency and responsibility, along with the elimination of corruption from the public system, represented the key commitments of the government towards Moldova’s citizens.  

The digitalization is another priority of the government. ‘’The digital solutions should be a normality in the state’s relation with the citizens, business environment and the civil society. The digitalization of the public services will enhance the transparency, being an excellent instrument for attenuating the corruption risk,’’ Natalia Gavrilita said. She stressed that, in this respect, the cabinet had appointed a deputy prime minister for digitalization. Presently, the state’s authorities work out the legal framework due to facilitate the online interaction with the public institutions and to exclude, to a greater extent, the need for the citizens or economic agents to present documents on paper.    

„We are now in the process of revising and updating the Moldova 2030 National Strategy of Sustainable Development and civil servants work closely with civil society experts on this important project. The same approach is also at ministries in the process of elaborating policies,’’ the PM noted. Gavrilita emphasized that the measures taken in the context of combating the COVID-19 pandemic had been first consulted with representatives of various sectors, such as, for instance, the business environment.   

At the same time, Natalia Gavrilita said that Moldova’s government was open for the involvement of Diaspora members with professional experience in companies and organizations from the West in the public administration system. On this purpose, decision-makers presently work out a national programme for stimulating the Diaspora in facilitating Moldovan citizens’ integration.
