The Minister of Information Society and Administration, Damjan Manchevski and Minister of Labor and Social Policy, Mila Carovska, attended the launch of the sixth Global Open Government Partnership Summit. This year, the Summit is held in Ottawa, Canada, and is expected to be attended by high representatives of governments and civil society organizations from around the world in the following two days.

North Macedonia was pointed out as positive example in terms of reforms concerning access to justice. During the event, this was also recognized by the Open Government Partnership Support Unit, as well as by the president of Open Society Foundations, Patrick Gaspard.

"10% of action plans for OGP now connect access to justice to open government. In North Macedonia, the Government is supporting four independent centers of access to justice, targeting marginalized groups and providing legal empowerment training to government officials", said Gaspard.
