The first FOI Annual Report in China will be Published Soon

The Regulations require the government agency to publish an FOI annual report before 31 March of each year (Article 31). The annual report should include particulars of proactive disclosure, requests received, granted, refused, appealed, fees charged and waived, and problems confronted and recommendations for reform (Article 32). An FOI annual report is an important promotional measure, and can help us obtain a relatively whole picture of the use of FOI legislation in China.
