China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS)

The Traffic Management Bureau with China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS) announced that traffic public services would be streamlined nationwide starting from September.

20 measures would be introduced, including requiring fewer or zero application materials, enabling citizens to handle different matters at the same counter, and providing access to traffic public services online in the campaign to improve traffic public services.

The MPS released the 20 measures in June and piloted eight of them in 36 major cities.

In a teleconference convened earlier, the Traffic Management Bureau asked its subordinate organs to work hard and get ready for implementing the reform measures nationwide on Sept. 1.

China had 319 million motor vehicles and 396 million vehicle drivers as at the end of June 2018, according to the MPS data.
