AT A GLANCE
Official Name: Republic of Mozambique
Independence: 1975 from Portugal
Improving Access to Public Services Information
Local Organization: Mozambique Documentation and Information Center, Ministry of Public Service
Canadian Expert: Steve Neilly
Mozambique has begun broad public sector reform. Politically and administratively, they are moving from a highly concentrated and centralized government to re-establish and re-empower local authority. A key priority is to establish a government-wide records and information management program and make government information available to citizens. Canadian information management expert Steve Neilly worked in partnership with the Documentation and Information Centre, CEDIMO, to deliver on this commitment.
