China has made steady progress in overall e-government development, and the nation's e-government development ranked 78th this year, reveals a UN survey recently.

The survey said that this is no small feat since it is a country of 1.2 billion people and a large land mass – both of which require more effort from the government, especially if the population is widely dispersed, than would a country with a small population living within a limited area.

According to the survey, China has enhanced the quality of its government portal by providing comprehensive information, more integrated services across different sectors and greater interactions between government officials and citizens.
