Discussing Disclosure Overseas

August 22, 2012
This week, Office of Information Policy (OIP) Director Melanie Ann Pustay wraps up a trip to Beijing, China, where she participated in two forums as a guest of, and sponsored by, The Carter Center.  Beginning this past weekend, Director Pustay took part in a forum entitled “Transparency and State-Owned Enterprises” at China’s Central Compilation and Translation Bureau, for an audience of Chinese government officials and members of the academic community.  Then, earlier this week, Director Pustay was a panelist for a discussion regarding  the deliberative process privilege and related issues surrounding the disclosure of internal working documents, which took place at Tsinghua University.  This forum was attended by students from Tsinghua University, as well as Chinese government officials. As head of the U.S. government’s lead FOIA policy and guidance office, Director Pustay works extensively with government officials in other countries to assist those officials in implementing their own openness-in-government initiatives.    In addition to participating in international events, Director Pustay frequently hosts foreign representatives at OIP in DC.  You can view all of the events that Director Pustay and other staff participate in on the Key Dates page of our site.
