Preparing for the hub inaugural meeting

Transparency

The concept for the Transparency hub has been endorsed by the Knesset Speaker and its Director General. The hub team is now preparing an inaugural virtual meeting, to be held by mid‑December. A core group of six secretaries general (or equivalent) will attend to take stock of parliamentary transparency and related developments, and to consider how these are affecting openness and parliamentary work. Based on this, the meeting will formulate the hub’s vision and objectives, and define ways of working for the future. A follow‑up meeting is planned for future hub transparency leads to develop a hub workplan and define implementation activities.
