Open data refers to government data that can be used independently, can be shared and reused by the people, the public or private sector for any purpose. It serves as a driving force in people-centric government initiatives. Implementation of open data can improve the quality and transparency of government delivery service through the sharing of data that is accurate, timely and relevant. In addition, it also increases the productivity and economy through industrial/new innovation with the involvement of citizens and the business community.
Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) responded to the government's initiative to implement open data to improve the quality and transparency of government delivery services. This page is created to display a set of data that can be shared and reused by the people, the public or private sector agencies.
The accompanying Circular is to provide guidance in the implementation of open data for public sector agencies to promote data sharing, improve government delivery service system and to promote economic growth.
