The Politburo meeting of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China held recently proposed to promote the healthy development of the platform economy, complete the special rectification of the platform economy, implement normalized supervision, and introduce specific measures to support the standardized and healthy development of the platform economy.

The meaning of this expression is extraordinary.

  In January this year, nine departments issued the "Several Opinions on Promoting the Healthy and Sustainable Development of the Platform Economy".

In March, a special meeting of the Financial Stability and Development Committee of the State Council proposed to promote the stable and healthy development of the platform economy and improve international competitiveness.

From the "Opinions" emphasizing "regulated and healthy development", to the "stable and healthy development" proposed by the Finance Committee meeting, and then to the "promotion of healthy development" at the meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, the signal transmitted is more positive, and the market feedback is also more positive.

It can be said that the confidence of the platform economy is expected to improve significantly.

  For a long time, my country has adhered to a tolerant and prudent regulatory attitude towards the "four new economies" represented by the platform economy.

In recent years, in response to the chaos in the platform economy in terms of data security, algorithm security, abuse of market dominance, and infringement of users' personal privacy, my country has adhered to both regulation and development, established a sound platform economic governance system, and promoted the healthy and sustainable platform economy. continuous development.

  The overall situation of my country's platform economy development is good, and the role is positive.

In view of the existing problems, the key is to make up for shortcomings, strengths and weaknesses, and create a market environment that encourages innovation, fair competition, and a standardized and orderly market.

It should be seen that the promotion of healthy development now does not mean that supervision should be relaxed, but that with the improvement of a series of regulatory measures and policies, the four pillars and eight pillars of platform economic supervision have been basically determined, so that the chaos of the platform economy can be gradually curbed and Enter a new phase of a virtuous cycle.

  It can be expected that after accelerating the completion of the rectification work of large platform companies, the follow-up supervision of the platform economy will move from abnormal centralized governance to normalized supervision based on the principles of marketization, rule of law, and internationalization, in order to prevent the recurrence of various problems. At the same time, it will create a better environment for the development of the platform economy.

  An important reason for the positive market feedback is that the meeting released a major positive – specific measures to support the healthy development of the platform economy will be introduced.

According to the "Opinions" previously issued by the nine departments, under the principles of standardized, transparent and predictable governance, a series of measures are expected to support the platform to strengthen technological innovation, enhance the level of global development, empower the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry, and promote the digital transformation of agriculture. As well as improving the platform's consumption and creativity, and so on.

  As an important force for my country to participate in international market competition, the research and exploration of new technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things cannot be separated from platform companies, and the development and application of commercialization cannot be separated from platform companies.

At the same time, the platform economy is also an important force in China's economic development, playing an irreplaceable role in stabilizing growth, ensuring employment, and promoting development.

The Politburo meeting of the Central Committee proposed to support the development of the platform economy and instill confidence in the relevant market players, but how long the boosted optimism can last depends largely on when the specific measures to support development are introduced and how strong they are.

Relevant departments should implement it as soon as possible, so that platform enterprises can develop with peace of mind and re-emerge the vitality of innovation and development.

  From an objective point of view, although there are pains of discomfort, after two years of intensive rectification, the platform economy has a new look, and its innovation, openness, and support for the macro economy have increased accordingly.

The global market is always there, and the technology and energy accumulated over the past ten years of the platform economy are also there, ready to go.

It is expected that the coordinated efforts of policies and the market will allow platform companies to take advantage of promoting innovation and sharing and accurately matching resources, becoming an important support for building new momentum for economic growth and new advantages in national competition, and promoting my country's platform economy to a new level of development.
