Penang gathering views to improve FOI laws

Penang will be gathering views from all parties, including experts and the public, on how to improve the implementation of the state’s Freedom of Information Enactment which was enforced last year.

Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy, who is in charge of the enactment, said the state government would be organising a two-day programme in conjunction with International Right to Know Day on Sept 28 to create awareness on the enactment.

He said organisers of the event, which starts on Sept 27, include think-tank and civil society organisations such as Penang Institute (PI), Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS), Research for Social Advancement (REFSA), the Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) and Project Sinar.
