Dear List Members

I am preparing a report on open data in developing countries and I would be
happy to hear you comments on two questions:

1) Why so many developing countries are joining the Open Government
Partnership - What are the drivers and expected outcomes in your views?

2) In Europe both governments and the European Union are often promoting
Open Data as a means to generate economic growth - what are the arguments
for open data that governments or civil society organisations are putting
forth in developing countries?

Thanks a lot for your help! I will share the report with this list once it
is finalised!
