The State Council launched its Chinese-language mobile app on Friday to facilitate information release and provide new mobile services for the public.

The app will be used mainly to release major decisions by the State Council and publicize major policy documents. Information on activities of senior State Council officials will be available on the app.

The app will also serve as a channel for government affairs-related services and interactions with the public.

The launch of the app is evidence of the State Council’s desire to be innovative in providing information and to increase opportunities for the public to participate in government affairs. It is also a way to streamline administrative functions and improve government services to encourage social innovation.

The app is managed by the General Office of the State Council, with the support of the English-language newspaper group China Daily.

It is available for downloading at mobile app stores, such as the Apple Store, 360 Mobile Assistant, Baidu Mobile Assistant and the Tencent App Store.

Users can also scan the following two-dimensional code to use the app.
