The missions and purposes of the proposed .政府 gTLD are described as follows.

1. The new .政府 gTLD to promote governmental images
The .政府 gTLD proposed by Net-Chinese and Taiwan Network Information Center (TWNIC) under the basis of partnership is an Internationalized Top Level Domain Name in Chinese to serve the Chinese-speaking people, places and communities around the world. There is about one-sixth of the worldʹs population or over one billion people using Chinese. Thus, the .政府 gTLD will be targeted to create efficient identity between Chinese-speaking people, places and communities and those who would like to convey information to the Chinese-speaking people, places and communities. One of the missions and purposes of the .政府 gTLD is to facilitate collaboration among government-to-government, government-to-business, and government-to-citizen entities globally. It is critical that each government, central or local, maintain good relationships with other governments for collaboration and support. The current domains under each .gov ccTLD do not serve the purpose of providing a unique domain for Chinese-speaking people, places and communities to exchange of information and collaboration among the governments.

Based on the mission and purpose, Net-Chinese is authorized by TWNIC to submit the application of .政府 gTLD, and TWNIC will fully support the registry operation, back-end, and financial expenditure for this application and operation after delegation.

The .政府 gTLD hosts government related websites of the federal⁄central governments, state⁄province governments or local governments such as city⁄county⁄township or any other governmental agencies or any applicable to the public interests. This new .政府 gTLD is innovative to create a one-shop show room, where all the official websites of governments around the world can be accessed by visitors.

The on-lined presence of the government under the .政府gTLD can promote its public image by providing services to businesses and citizens on an upgraded level. The governmental functions, including administrative, judicial and legislative, will have impacts far beyond their traditional jurisdictions and geographic limits. In addition, .政府 gTLD provides the official and trusted Internet presence for these government entities.

2. The new .政府gTLD to meet the needs of IDN market
The rise of political and economic power of the Chinese-speaking community around the world echoes the growing needs of Internationalized Domain Names. One out of every six people in the world use Chinese as their main language to communicate among themselves. It is critical for them to use a language familiar to them to surf the Internet and search the world. The .政府 gTLD in Chinese, which means the government providing services to the public for the best interests, is an innovation and a convenient tool for the Chinese-speaking people to search for the official websites of governments not only of their home towns but also every country in the world.

In order to avoid unnecessary political implications of the .政府 gTLD, Net-Chinese, a private professional domain name service provider incorporated and headquartered in Taiwan, is authorized by the Taiwan Network Information Center to submit the application of .政府 TLD.
