Now, the wave of digitalization is profoundly affecting economic and social activities. First, digital technology is remarkably changing the production and lifestyle of human beings; second, the digitalization process of various social industries has stepped into a new stage. According to Che Zhongliang, regardless of the 14th Five-Year Plan or the macro-policy framework, all competent authorities, from government departments to major state-owned banks, the characteristics and direction of "new finance" are constantly evolving around the perceptive of industrial finance, inclusive financing, green finance, and technological innovation finance.
