The promoted government mobile payments program aims to persuade people to pay administrative fees via the mobile app Guizhoutong, saving on processing time between different departments.
Social insurance, medical insurance and traffic tickets can now all be paid with a cellphone. Payment record data can also be easily collected by related departments to improve the database of the local government.
