Indonesia’s Central Information Commission (KIP) and President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo urged all public institutions, public sector companies, including local administrations to provide more public access to their information. In order to encourage more public institutions to provide access to information KIP instituted a system of recognition and reward for those institutions and companies who showed outstanding achievement in this regard.
