China to further optimize government services

China is seeking to further optimize its government services, standardizing and normalizing those services and making them more convenient, according to a guideline issued by the State Council.

The directive set out the main tasks in this area, including standardizing the detailed lists of government service items and their implementation, and modifying the standard system for services.

He called for the standardization of services, including those related to review and approval, those involving intermediaries and online services, urging efforts to improve the quality of smart, targeted and personalized services.

The directive also highlighted the need for efforts to improve the capacity of the integrated national system of government services and strengthen its data sharing capabilities.

The continuous optimization of government services is important to facilitate business operations and people’s entrepreneurship, facilitate the circulation of the national economy and foster a new pattern of development, according to the guideline.

It is also an intrinsic requirement for building a service-oriented government that the people are satisfied with, and for modernizing the national governance system and capacities, according to the guideline.
