The development course of Chinese e-government can be divided into 3 periods: the first one is before 1993, where the focus was put into office automation, to build a crosswise internal work network. The second period is from 1993 to 2000. In this period some huge projects (Golden Bridge, Golden Customs and Golden Card in March 1993, and the Government Online Project, in January 1999) were carried out. Finally, the third stage began after October 2000. In this period, the government and government officials recognized the importance and function of e-government.
