3 ministries do not have a page in the open data portal

While the role of the open data platform is to publish data sets for ministries and government agencies with the aim of creating a government database and developing a general strategy to enable transparency, encourage e-participation and stimulate creativity, there is an absence of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Defense, Culture, and on the other hand the absence of updates in some of them. It constitutes an obstacle to the searcher for information.
