Main Opnions

With the entry of overseas payment institutions, China's payment industry should adapt to the new pattern of comprehensive opening up, steadily and orderly promote the two-way opening of the payment industry, adhere to the principle of paying equal attention to both going out and importing, make overall use of the two markets and two resources at home and abroad, enrich the supply of payment services, and comprehensively upgrade the two-way cross-border payment.

First, the market competition was more fierce. International bank card clearing institutions and Payment institutions would have a certain impact on the pricing and marketing mode of domestic bank card market by virtue of their global network and technical advantages, and would further promote the deep integration and development of domestic and foreign bank card market. American Express, MasterCard, visa, JCB and other card organizations were willing to engage in RMB bank card clearing business.

The second was that the opening of bank card clearing market and payment industry would promote the marketization process of bank card and payment industry. With the opening of the market and the increase of participating institutions, the regulatory role of the market itself would be played and the marketization of China's payment industry would be gradually promoted to maturity.

Third, cooperation at home and abroad was conducive to promoting innovation in the payment industry. In order to solve the problem of cross-border remittance, the domestic cooperative application of the distributed ledger in blockchain technology eliminated the reconciliation link, completed the transaction and payment at the same time, improving the transaction speed and effectively reducing the transaction cost. At the same time, because the intermediary agencies were omitted, the "frozen" funds could be activated, thus greatly improving the liquidity of funds.

With the rapid pace of opening up, the competition in China's payment market would be more and more fierce. Only by actively using financial technology and improving their innovation ability and core competitiveness, can payment industry participants win more opportunities in the competition and provide better services for customers.
