In December 2006, the Chinese government announced new freedoms for foreign media and published them on the Web site of the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games.

“The Regulations on Reporting Activities by Foreign Journalists shall apply to the coverage of the Beijing Olympic Games and the preparation as well as political, economic, social and cultural matters of China by foreign journalists, in conformity with Chinese laws and regulations.” The temporary regulations are in effect from Jan. 1, 2007 until Oct. 17, 2008.
