Li said, "Last year, both the Shanghai and Guangzhou governments rejected our requests, saying the information we wanted was a state secret. The Health Ministry did not publish its budget, but we were allowed to read it on the condition that no photocopies would be made.
"This year, I’m really surprised to learn that last year’s state secrets have become public information in Guangzhou. It’s a good thing for the public to become more aware of their rights and begin engaging in discussion over public finances."
