Hot on the heels of being awarded the distinguished title of “National Forest City”, Dongguan won yet another honor last month – “ Most Efficient Government ”. The ranking, which put Dongguan first out of 104 cities, was issued by Beijing Normal University and Jiangxi Normal University, wrote that “ The 2015 Chinese local government efficiency report is measured by a system of standards and indexes, which signify public services, public goods, the scale of the government, the welfare of residents, and e-government.” In fact, this is the second time that Dongguan topped the rankings. Last year, Dongguan was first but the report only measured 54 cities then. The fact that Dongguan beat Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Nanjing was sure to be massively welcomed and celebrated by officials and local residents.
