Open contracting in
Advancing reforms through partnerships
Asia Pacific stands out for its diversity of countries and cultures and its size – with 60% of the world’s population living in the region. We have seen a remarkable rise of a community dedicated to open contracting across the region.
From Australia to Thailand, more countries are committing to open up their public contracting and procurement processes. While some reformers are new to open contracting and building their knowledge, others have started to move ahead with lots of promise for progress and concrete plans.
Through our dedicated presence in the region, we aim to have more implementers adopting public procurement that is ‘open by design’, make open contracting the norm, and build a strong community to promote it.
