What is the public problem that the commitment will address? The South Africa Open Government Partnership is developing its 4 th National Action Plan for the 2020-2022 cycle. The SA OGP process had its first beneficial ownership transparency commitment in the 3rd OGP National Action. Several milestones have been achieved in response to the commitment. BOT remains crucial for South Africa’s open governance, and stemming the tide against corruption, moneylaundering and illicit financial flows.

What is the commitment? 1. To review the progress made in the 3rd Country Action Plan and align it with the priorities of the 6th Administration, especially the work done under the Security Cluster. 2. To propose the course of action on carrying forward with the BOT commitment under the OGP auspices given the sixth Administration priorities.
