Dnipropetrovsk region, southeastern Ukraine, is considered the leader among the country’s regions by implementing innovations in fighting corruption and open government system. According to Olesya Arkhypska, management expert of Transparency International, the regional authorities successfully implement ideas of the Open Government Partnership, the international initiative aiming to improve openness and transparency of power. Arkhypska said that the key factors in this regard are transparency of power and close contact between the authorities and civil society.
“Dnipropetrovsk region is the leader in implementing digital governance in Ukraine, a paragon of technocratic government. This is what the Cabinet of Ministers lacks, because most of the assignments are purely political. But here, in Dnipropetrovsk region, it’s different. Of course, experience of implementing such management is quite interesting”, said the management expert of Transparency International.
