“Trust between citizens, between member states, and in government itself is one of the most vital needs for peace and the prosperity of humankind.

Global Forum on Re-Inventing Government
In 2007, the United Nations hosted the 7th Global Forum on Reinventing Government on the theme of "Building Trust in Government" at its headquarters in Vienna. Trust was examined in terms of its relationship with public sector capacities and the costs in its absence. The conference, which was organized in cooperation with the Government of Austria, also explored strategies and innovations that generate improvements in governance and earn the trust of citizens. Efficient, accountable, effective and transparent governance plays a key role in the implementation of policy objectives and internationally agreed goals. Stressing the need to strengthen public sector capacities, the United Nations General Assembly has welcomed the support provided by the Secretariat to the Global Forum through resolution A/RES/57/277.
