U.S. Ambassador S. Fitzgerald Haney asserted that “the U.S. government sponsors this PeaceTech Exchange because we believe in regional connections on themes that will create better civil society organizations and stronger government institutions. The more people know about their government, the better prepare they will be to improve them. This simple idea is in the heart of the movement to have more transparency and access to information.”
