Electronic government (e-government) has developed rapidly, the Mobile Government service (m-government) as one of the import branches play a significant role in recent years, and it would be also an effective way to satisfy Chinese rural citizen’s information needs. Our research question is how the m-government service satisfies Chinese rural citizen’s information needs. The investigation is conducted with questionnaires in a rural town where in Guangdong Province. We find that the most needed information perceived or expresses by rural citizen are closely related to their basic survival. There is a big potential to develop m-government service in rural areas since most of rural citizen haven’t paid attention on it. Last we put forward some suggestions for improving m-government services for Chinese rural citizen.
