In the post-epidemic era, China's digital government is facing important opportunities and challenges. In terms of opportunities, accelerating the popularization and promotion of digital services, promoting the digitalization of public health management, promoting the innovation of government governance models and promoting the digitalization and upgrading of emergency management systems provide opportunities for improving the efficiency of government governance and the level of public services. On the challenge side, they will need to address the scale and maintenance of technology infrastructure, data security and privacy protection, the complexity of digital management and cross-sector collaboration, and the dynamics of public trust and engagement. Based on the analysis of the development of China's digital government in the post-epidemic era, the author believes that the efficient, intelligent and sustainable development of digital government can be achieved by strengthening the construction of digital infrastructure, promoting data security legislation, promoting cross-departmental collaboration and data sharing, and enhancing public participation and digital literacy.
