Dear Mr Sookun

Thank you for your interest in the Open Data Readiness Assessment exercise
for Mauritius.

Your invitation as well as those of your colleagues should be issued by
Monday 25 May at latest.

We welcome your suggestion to invite other people interested with open data
through a public announcement. However, kindly forward us the contacts of
any user groups/association of developers to whom we could send out

Thanks & regards
Rajnish Hawabhay

Subject: Mauritius Open Data Readiness Assessment

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you to enquire about the workshops[1] aimed at assessing
Open Data readiness of Mauritius. I believe the Ministry of Technology,
Communication and Innovation is sending out invites to people interested in
Open Data.

Earlier in May I was contacted by Ms Alla Morrison of the World Bank. I
expressed my interest in participating in the workshops. I also suggested
her names of other local developers I know, as she requested. I haven't
receive any invite yet and it appears other people who showed interest
haven't either.

Is the Ministry of TCI sending invites based on a list of names? Wouldn't it
be more proper to broadcast a public announcement calling for people who are
interested in Open Data, just the way Ms Morrison did?
