Recently, the PBoC has confirmed it will pilot its central bank digital currency (CBDC) in a number of districts and plans to roll it out at the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022, and the PBoC’s Digital Currency Research Institute confirmed “closed pilot tests” would be conducted in Shenzhen, Suzhou, Xiong’an New District and Chengdu.

In addition, the Chinese government has been strictly regulating fintech business over the last few years. Detailed policies and guidance have been introduced to support the continuous growth of fintech business and to ensure that it is under proper supervision. Consequently, many small fintech companies have been wiped out of the market because of the increasing compliance cost, while big ones have survived. Meanwhile, the government encourages financial institutions to adopt new information technologies. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) released the Fintech Development Plan (2019–2021) which states the national framework policy for the development of fintech business. The Plan encouraged the development of fintech solutions by using various digital technologies and fintech business will be regulated in a “prudent” manner in order to control the risks associated with information security, transaction security and business continuity. In this context, small P2P lending platforms died out, while bigger and more prudent players continued to grow. Specialised technology companies, including those which provide IT solutions to financial institutions, are developing fast.
