Open Government Data Policy

The Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain prioritizes data sharing with the public, which it perceives to be an essential step towards enhancing transparency and accountability in matters relating to governance. To achieve this objective, the Government is committed to publishing open data to encourage cooperation between all segments of society (citizens, residents, visitors, and business owners) and include them as partners. Which will lead to innovative solutions to help overcome challenges and create a higher quality of life for the public.
The Open Data Policy (PDF, 344KB, 16 pages) sheds light on the Government’s commitment to making non-sensitive data more accessible and easily shareable, a milestone commercial and social achievement for the Kingdom.

The policy consists of two parts:
1.Open Data Strategy
This allows taking instant procedures that encourage the use of public data and applying them to a wide scope, which will improve the quality of life and incentivize commercial activities, in turn leading to a better society and stronger national economy.
