What can we expect the future implementation of FOI Regulations in China?

Although China got its first national FOI Regulations, there is still a long way for China to learn and be familiar with this new system in the future. Conflicting legislation is still effective, including the secret law, archives law and others. The conflict between FOI Regulations and local government previous FOI legislation is another occasion. Positive responses or strong political support from government agencies to the new FOI Regulations are the key element for a successful implementation. The success of these FOI Regulations will also depend on major culture changes and necessary resources. The success of this new Regulations will depend on the reactions from members of the public, including citizens, journalists, businesses and others.
