Jilin and Hainan Province published their FOI annual report on their government websites. The number of access requests came as a surprise. Government agencies in Jilin Province located in Northeast of China,received 45992 requests, the largest number among other provinces in 2008. In contrast, government agencies in Hainan Province based in South of China received none of requests in the previous year. This is quite different from their climate. Jilin is a cold climate, and Hainan is a hot one.
