Consumer finance to drive consumption rise

Updated 2018-01-11 10:01:14

Consumer finance is seen as the driver in boosting consumption growth in China which, in turn, will greatly impact the country's economic transformation, according to a report of Tsinghua University yesterday.

"I believe that consumer finance will be an important industry, as consumer finance is substantially serving the real economy," said Li Daokui, professor at the Center for China in the World Economy in Tsinghua University.

Li spoke at third China Consumer Finance Forum held by the center which released a research report on Chinese consumer credit market in 2017.

Consumer financial services are a good way to complement traditional financial services because the former can be a catalyst to help people to pursue new consumption patterns, the report said.

The report suggests that the consumer finance market should emphasize regulation and innovation in order to ensure the healthy and sustainable development of the market.
