Transparency Forum 3.0

Transparency Forum 3.0

Learn how the Freedom of Information (FOI) Bill will impact you.

The Freedom of Information (FOI) bill seeks to mandate the disclosure of public documents, and to specify the processes in accessing the documents and the exemptions to the law. The bill has been passed in the Senate, but is still pending in the House of Representatives. As it is one of the Aquino administration’s 26 priority bills, FOI advocates expect the bill to be passed later this year or early next year.

Given the prospective passage of the Freedom of Information (FOI) bill, knowledge and understanding of the bill is crucial to the different members of the Philippine society. FOI will reduce corruption and secrecy, and will promote transparency, accountability and citizen involvement.

Asia Society’s 3rd annual Transparency Forum will be dedicated to understanding FOI and its potential implications. The forum will also provide perspectives from our Asian neighbors who have FOI laws.
