Intervenção da Ministra da Modernização do Estado e da Administração Pública no encontro de pontos de contacto nacionais do Observatório de Inovação do Setor Público da OCDE (inglês)

Let me begin by saying how grateful I am to the OECD and the Portuguese Agency for Administrative Modernisation for hosting this Biannual Meeting of National Contact Points of the Observatory for Public Sector Innovation.

Hosting this meeting in our country, even if virtually, allows us to reinforce the Portuguese commitment to innovation in our public administration.

This meeting was supposed to take place in 2020, but in the meantime the world has changed forcing us to delay it. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lives, forced us to redefine our work models, changed the way we relate to institutions, but, above all, it has changed the way we look to the future.

I strongly believe that in this time of uncertainty, it is up to the public sector to be a driving force for economic and social development. Therefore, I see with great optimism the way the public administration has responded to one of the greatest challenges of our recent history.

There is no progress without innovation. Portugal has always recognized this and that's why, in 2012, it joined the Task Force to create the OPSI, being one of its "founding members".
