Government to boost integration with internet
China is stepping up improving government services via the Internet Plus and aims to set up a nationwide internet-based government service system by the end of 2020, according to a new State Council guideline.
Internet Plus, proposed by Premier Li Keqiang, refers to applying the internet and other information technology resources to conventional industries to foster new industries and businesses.
“The internet will not only provide people with more accessible public services, but will also help the government to improve its management via various ways,” Li said.
The guideline sets the goal that central and regional departments will establish an open and integrated internet platform by the end of 2017 that is interconnected across administrative levels. It aims to build a nationwide Internet Plus Government Services System by the end of 2020.
