The State Council, China's cabinet, has unveiled a guideline to accelerate the development of a one-stop platform for online processing of the country's government services.
The platform will help improve the business environment, energize the market, and allow people to have easier access to services, according to the guideline signed by Premier Li Keqiang.
The document has put forward a four-step plan to establish the hub within five years, as the country plans to offer almost all government services on the one-stop online portal before the end of 2022.
Nine pilot provincial-level regions, including Shanghai, and six State Council departments will integrate their government services onto the platform before the end of this year.
According to the document, the General Office of the State Council will head up a work group to oversee and advance the project.
