Transparency Seal
Corporate Governance Seal
A pearl buried inside a tightly–shut shell is practically worthless. Government information is a pearl mean to be shared with the public in order to maximize its inherent value. The Transparency Seal, depicted by a pearl in shining out of an open shell, is a symbol of a policy shift towards openness in access to government information. On the other hand, it hopes to inspire Filipinos in the civil service to be more open to citizen engagement, and on the other, to invite the Filipino citizenry to exercise their right to participate in governance. This initiative is envisioned as a step in the right direction towards solidifying the position of the Philippines as the Pearl of the Orient – a shining example for democratic virtue in the region.
