Shanghai: a key local forerunner of FOI in China

In 2009, the Shanghai government was committed to making it one of the regions with the highest transparency across the country. It determines to establish a push model of FOI which takes information requests as a last resort. The Hunan government, which is based on a comparatively developing area, is also keen to the push or proactive disclosure way, but it acknowledges that this way can help it focus more on other more urgent tasks in its locality.
