Bringing together key stakeholders from international agencies and national statistics offices, this session will take stock of the global commitments to open data and investigate the extent to which international initiatives have been supportive of the expansion of open data. Key questions for the session include: How have such initiatives provided strategic direction and encouragement to the open data movement? What else is needed to harness and strengthen international support and commitments to open data? We will hear diverse perspectives from the panelists before opening up the floor for a discussion with the audience.
