Greek Infrastructures, Transport and Networks Minister Yiannis Ragoussis is participating in Tuesday's high level meeting in Washington, under the auspices of the UN, on the issue of open governance. It is an international initiative of the governments of the US and Brazil, of the two countries' Foreign ministers in particular, Hillary Clinton and Antonio Patriota respectively.
Tuesday's meeting has the main aim of securing commitments by governments, as is mentioned in a relative announcement, for the promotion of transparency, the strengthening of citizens and the combatting of corruption, as well as the utilisation of new technologies to back governance.

Ragoussis said that the United States and the international community more widely recognise Greece's initiatives over the past 20 months for the reformation of the state, the promotion of meritocracy, transparency, accountability and open governance.
