In order to strengthen high-level dialogue about the information society between China and the EU, the EU-China Information Society project has been launched as part of the EU technical assistance programme in China, to promote economic and social reform through informatisation.

With this aim, the EU designed a regulatory framework by introducing best practises from the EU; the project supports the Chinese Government in enacting and implementing essential laws, regulations and policies to improve the legal and regulatory environment for e-commerce, e-government and convergence. Specific topics cover telecommunications policy, access to government information, data protection, online copyright, electronic signature, electronic contracts, information security and online arbitration.
