Serbia is in a good position to move forward with an Open Data Initiative. The existing e-government strategy and open government action plan within the context of administrative reform provide a good general backdrop even if strong central high-level support for open data is elusive, while at the same time enough
quick wins have emerged that allow a speedy start with a range of pilots. These pilots are important to meet already well articulated societal and business demand, and counteract existing lack of trust between societal stakeholders and government bodies. With the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self
Government, and the Directorate for e-Government within it as an operational unit, there is also a logical home for an open data initiative in the structure of government, which provides a focus on both eective government and improved public service.
