In the context of Bangladesh, open government data is critical to ensure effective public services. There are huge government and private sector data that can contribute in decision making for policy makers as well as for common citizen. Also, open data and open government data can support policy reform and ensure transparency and citizen participation. The release of data in open data formats has been established to be a driver in terms of better public service, economic growth, job creation, research and innovation, which itself has been identified as one of the primary drivers of development. In this regard, the initiative of developing open data portal has been taken and the open government portal was launched in 2016. In this portal, there are publicly available data sets from more than 35 Ministries and related agencies.
