This report analyses the progresses made by Mexico in implementing the recommendations of the OECD 2016 Open Government Data Review. It identifies areas for further improvement and proposes a set of policy recommendations in areas such as institutional governance, strategic leadership, policy ownership, monitoring and reporting, and digital skills. The report underscores how open data policy can contribute to government priorities such as anti-corruption and social inclusion, and government’s crucial role in creating the conditions and opportunities for innovation and collaboration. It also underlines the role that actors from the private and third-sector, journalists and the academia play in ensuring policy continuity and sustainability.




Since 2013, the Mexican government has recognised open government data (OGD) as a policy priority. Its inclusion as a strategic tool for achieving the goals of Mexico’s National Development Plan and National Digital Strategy underscores the importance of open data for the digital transformation of the Mexican public sector. Using open government data and collaborating with citizens to address society’s needs and policy challenges are the cornerstones of digital government and are in line with Mexico’s efforts to develop a digital economy. Moreover, OGD is an integral part of efforts to strengthen public sector productivity, accountability and integrity, to facilitate business and civic innovation, and to promote evidence-informed policy making.
