The Executive Order on Freedom of Information opens the executive branch, along with the agencies below it, to the people. It makes the government as transparent as ever.
It strengthens the right to information as enshrined in our constitution.
The executive order of FOI encourages citizen participation; when there is engagement, everyone becomes a partner for change. This is the centerpiece of President Duterte’s platform on good governance and transparency.
Every Filipino now has public access to information and official records.
