eThekwini Municipality believes that the lives of citizens living in Durban can be dramatically improved by providing open data about key public services. The eThekwini Council demonstrated this belief when it noted on 2015-03-31 that eThekwini should, in the long term, provide open data for all its Citizens. Global experience shows that the benefits of open data include economic growth and job creation, improved public services and a more transparent government.
