Positioning and Operating Mechanism of Service-Oriented Township Government Construction: The Perspective of Transformation of Government Functions

Sui TAN, Jiang WU


With the development of economic globalization and the constant progress of China’s reform and opening up, traditional government administrative system cannot meet the needs of our current economic and social development, so the construction of service-oriented government is not only an irresistible trend of building China’s harmonious society, but also an inevitable direction of China’s long-term development. Township government, as grass-root government, has become the foothold of China’s service-oriented government construction, and decides the success or failure of China’s service-oriented government construction.
In this paper, with the background of the Third Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee, the positioning of township government is carried out from four dimensions by the analysis on the status, problems and reasons of service-oriented town government, and then the operating mechanism of service-oriented government from the perspective of transformation of government functions is built, in order to achieve the service-oriented township government.
