Malta's Participation in Open Government

Malta joined the OGP in 2011, thereby committing to uphold the principles of open and transparent government by showing a level of citizen engagement, and enabling civil partners to have enough power to be able to deliver their message to government. 

Since joining OGP, Malta submitted 3 National Action Plans (NAP) up till 2022. Due to issues in timely submission of a new action plan, in 2022, the OGP Steering Committee designated Malta as inactive in the OGP. Government has decided to reactivate its membership, by committing itself to address a number of requirements and to submit its 4th National Action Plan by December 2023. Malta submitted its 4th National Action Plan to the OGP Steering Committee on 27th December 2023 in accordance with OGP requirements.
