Media Restrictions in China

Chinese authorities will allow foreign journalists more access to the country in the run up to the 2008 Olympic Games.

At present, journalists need government approval to report outside Shanghai and Beijing but a Foreign Ministry spokesperson has confirmed that under new regulations, reporters will need only the permission of their interview subjects from now on until the end of the Games.

The new rules come in to affect from January 1, 2007 and will run to October 17, 2008.
