Emphasis on Proactive Disclosure by Governments

Chinese FOI laws strongly emphasis the proactive disclosure of administrative and planning regulations, major matters of public interest, the use and supervision of public funds and personnel matters. This type of disclosure is enforceable, or can be complained about, by citizens. Many of the FOI laws have a provision to allow pre-decisional access by citizens access to draft plans or policies that involve major decisions which affect the interests of citizens. #
