Tokyo American Center and The Japan Times will jointly present a lecture and discussion meeting on electronic freedom of information in the U.S. and its lessons for Japan on March 16, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Tokyo American Center in Shiba Koen, Minato-ku.

In this followup to the American Center-Japan Times seminar held in September on freedom of information, two American experts will present their views on the current situation in the U.S. The speakers are Daniel J. Metcalfe, codirector of the Office of Information and Privacy at the Department of Justice, and William Ferroggiaro, Freedom of Information Act coordinator for the nonprofit and nongovernmental National Security Archive.
