AMMAN — Planning Minister Imad Fakhoury on Tuesday opened the Government Transparency Unit, a Planning Ministry statement said.

The unit aims to assist the ministry and other public and private institutions in following up on the participation and commitments of Jordan to the initiative of transparent governments.

During the opening ceremony, Fakhoury said that the establishment of the unit and the selection of a civil society activist to conduct its work in coordination with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development is an evidence of the seriousness of the government’s approach towards greater transparency in order to deepen and institutionalise participatory and consultative approach in the management of public affairs.
