A promotional conference for a digital village governance platform was held in Yinzhou district, Ningbo on July 19, attracting more than 100 representatives from departments and agencies of the district.

A platform entitled "Village Governance on Palm" was launched by Yinzhou district last September. To date, the platform has been applied in 18 villages in Yunlong town and 80 percent of residents in the area have used it. It will later be promoted to over 300 villages and communities in 21 towns in the district.

The tourism resources, history, and culture of villages are featured on the platform in various ways, such as livestreaming, videos and virtual reality. In addition to public services, villagers can also participate in the monitoring and discussion of major issues in the village and receive legal services on the platform.

"We conducted several livestreams on the platform," said Zhang Chenglong, Party secretary of Guanying village of Yunlong town, "The residents can tune into the livestreams and ask about their concerns.”
