OEWD: China emails

Joseph Ratliff filed this request with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development of San Francisco, CA.


From: Joseph Ratliff

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all emails, including headers, metadata, and timestamps, sent or received by officials of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, particularly including:
Manish Goyal, Business Development Manager, Office of Economic and Workforce Development (Manish.goyal@sfgov.org), and
Joaquín Torres, Director, Office of Economic and Workforce Development,
from March 31, 2019 to October 5, 2019, which contain the non-case-sensitive phrases "Belt and Road," "One Belt One Road," "Chinese Communist Party," "Communist Party of China," "Communist Party," "CCP," "CPC," "Zhōngguó gòngchǎndǎng."

From a report by the Bay Area Council Economic Institute: "To a degree that far exceeds other major economies, China’s technology development trajectory is deeply connected to government through a web of industrial policies set by the Communist Party, whose influence extends beyond provincial and local governments and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) to private companies as well." (http://www.bayareaeconomy.org/report/chinese-innovation/)

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.


Joseph Ratliff

From: Office of Economic and Workforce Development
