The following text was contributed by the Government of Jordan. 

Jordan attaches great significance to being part of the OGP, and views this Partnership as an opportunity and an important platform that gives us the chance to highlight the Jordanian model of home-grown reforms, as Jordan is well-positioned to be a model for successful reforms for our region. In this context, it is worth mentioning that Jordan is, so far, the only Arab country that met the criteria required to take part in this important multilateral initiative.

For the purpose of participating in the OGP, the Prime Minister formed an Ad-hoc Committee in October 2011 comprising representatives from the public and private sectors in addition to civil society organizations to work on developing Jordan’s national Action Plan pertaining to the participation in this Partnership. The OGP national Action Plan of Jordan, which is published on the Jordanian Prime Ministry’s website (, both in Arabic and English languages, constitutes an integral part of our national reform plans, and focuses on addressing three grand challenges:  

1) Improving public services

2) Increasing public integrity

3) More effectively managing public resources

The Ad-hoc Committee is currently developing Jordan’s second national Action Plan focusing on the work of “the Royal Committee for enhancing the National Integrity System” headed by the Prime Minister. This Royal Committee is currently engaged in a wide and inclusive consultation process across the Kingdom to build a national consensus around a National Charter for strengthening the integrity system in the country, which will serve as a road map for future reforms in this vital area towards strengthening integrity, transparency, the rule of law, accountability, justice and equal opportunities.
