With deepening social modernization and increasing living standards, the public imposes higher requirements for governmental activities. How to build more smooth and convenient public information obtaining channels? How to provide high-quality services more efficiently for the people? How to integrate intelligence into public systems to establish more economic and efficient modern government departments? How to reduce administrative expenses and official waste, and improve efficiency and productivity? These are the urgent problems that concern all governments.

In the new social situations, building digital and intelligent governments through information technologies is an important measure to implement the national informatization development strategies, improve governance capabilities, and build a harmonious society. Governments should change the functions, work methods, and work styles, further improve work quality and efficiency, and establish efficient, collaborative, and standardized administration management systems. Digital and intelligent construction is an important step to build service-oriented governments.

ZTE’s knowledge services always focus on promoting intelligent social life, assuming social responsibilities, and making the world benefit from technological advance. Based on the major steps and opportunities during the informatization and intelligent process in China, and with particular experience, ZTE provides comprehensive, accurate, and professional one-stop knowledge services for governments to improve the scientific decision-making level. Based on many years of experience, and oriented to governments and industries, ZTE University launched many high-level talk courses in 2012, such as smart government, smart power, and smart city. By following the national informatization trends, and in accordance with the current status and prospective of the information industry, ZTE finds problems and formulates solutions efficiently for governments, understands the latest economic situations, and develops relevant policies to provide a high-end professional knowledge service platform.

The Seminar on Smart Government for Developing Countries, which was sponsored by the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China, organized by Shenzhen Association for Promoting International Economic & Technological Cooperation, and exclusively co-organized by ZTE University, was held in Dameisha, Shenzhen from June to August in 2012. This seminar involves middle and high-level officials from over 70 countries, who serve national network infrastructure or are devoted to formulating and researching on national informatization policies, such as officials from the Ministry of Information Industry, the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, and the Ministry of Communications.
