At present, as the "basic plate" of China's real economy, listed companies play a key role in leading scientific and technological innovation, accelerating industrial upgrading and boosting economic development.

"Listed companies are usually leading companies in the province or city where they are located, and their number and scale can reflect the quality of economic development of the province and city. Transforming the development advantages of listed companies into regional economic advantages is an effective way to enhance regional economic strength. Wang Xin, global partner and chairman of Greater China, Sullivan told the Securities Daily reporter that on the one hand, listed companies promote local industrial clustering, and by integrating upstream and downstream enterprises into their own industrial chain, they can improve the local industrial ecology. On the other hand, listed companies can participate in the merger and reorganization process of enterprises with difficulties in operation in their regions in combination with their own development strategies, revitalize existing assets, and promote local economic development.
