December 23, 2013―Budget data that is open and easy-to-read allows people to know how and where governments spend their money. Togo is one of 13 countries featured in the recently launched Open Budgets Portal, a new knowledge product of the World Bank. Moldova is one of the first developing countries to have launched an Open Data portal, in May 2011 – opening its public expenses and other types of data in reusable formats.
