Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Croatia, the United States, the Philippines, France, Georgia, Indonesia, the UK, Romania, South Africa and Tanzania signed a high-level declaration, led by Mexico, to promote the implementation of this Agenda through open government principles (transparency, accountability, innovation and citizen participation), highlighting the use of open data as a catalyst for collaboration between all sectors of society.

The Open Data Charter was therefore launched, as a result of Mexico’s leadership, which recognizes that in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Objectives, open data must be timely, comparable and available for reuse by anyone, anywhere and at any time.
