U.S. Trade and Development Agency - Open Government Intiative

Welecome to the U.S. Trade and Development Agency's Open Government web page. In response to the Obama Administration's Open Government Directive, USTDA will strive to implement the three core principals of transparency, participation, and collaboration that form the cornerstone of an open government.

Transparency. Government should provide citizens with information about what their government is doing so that government can be held accountable.

Participation. Government should actively solicit expertise from outside Washington so that it makes policies with the benefit of the best information.

Collaboration. Government officials should work together with one another and with citizens as part of doing their job of solving national problems.
