EU-China Information Society Project

At invitation of UCL last week I attended a meeting with a delegation from the Chinese Government. The delegation were interested in the UK approach Freedom of Information. Interest in Freedom of Information China is growing, as an important method to expose corruption at local levels and the link between transparec in administrative improvement and economic growth. The visit was part of a wider programme of the EU-China Information Society project.

I had previously highlighted an interesting series of articles on Open Government in China in Government Information Quarterly .
