Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] We need to change that, we need to overcome the inertia to this development in the public sector. I want public sector workers on all levels to be proud of providing a first-rate data and information service to citizens which can be re-used to create new content and new services. Getting out the data under reasonable conditions for quality, speed and re-usability should become a routine part of the business of public administrations. That investment by the public sector will be good for transparency and accountability, good for scientific progress, and good for our economy. To this end I will propose a policy package in November, including a review of the Directive on the re-use of public sector information.
