Plan to digitalize government services approved

A State Council executive meeting on Wednesday reviewed and approved a plan to digitalize government services nationwide during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025). China will accelerate the construction of a digital government to improve administrative services, according to the meeting, which was chaired by Premier Li Keqiang. 

Accordingly, the country should create a national digital government network to improve regional and interagency information sharing, and ensure its digital public services cover more sectors and become more accessible, according to the meeting. It also needs to increase the use of digital technologies during major emergencies and encourage the digitalization of market regulation, the meeting said.
