National Development and Reform Commission Research Seminar: Central Bank Digital Currency May Accelerate Rollout

At the ninth meeting of the National Development and Reform Commission's Digital Economy New Infrastructure Research Project, more than 10 experts and scholars studied and judged that the epidemic is a catalyst for the digital economy, and fast, comprehensive, and accurate data collection and analysis is the prerequisite for efficient decision-making. In the post-epidemic period, the state may increase investment and procurement. The central bank's digital currency may accelerate the launch and become a special “special fund” that can be controlled throughout the entire process. The central bank's digital currency may become the “new version of the four trillion” targeted stimulus option to accelerate the launch.
