In accordance with the Digital China strategy, the Mayor of Beijing declared in 1999 that Beijing Municipal Government (BMG) would launch the Digital Beijing plan. Digital Beijing aimed at building up an advanced and comprehensive information platform to support Beijing's sustainable development, as well as creating a public information space for government, enterprises and citizens to interact and to share knowledge. Digital Beijing changes the conception of traditional administration and contributed to the reengineering of organization structures of BMG. As a result, e-government, to some extent, promoted ‘quantitative management’ in governmental administration, supervision and service. However, the transaction capability of e-government in the future will largely depend on the result of horizontal connections. Due to a great number of databases serving individual agencies or even offices, it is necessary to continue to invest in setting up the mechanisms of sharing and maintaining information resources.
