Chinese regulators have for a long time been working tirelessly to prevent potential systemic financial risks, especially those brought by domestic firms attaining global assets.
In August last year, China accelerated financial management of overseas investments by state owned enterprises (SOEs) in order to enhance returns and manage risks, according to the Ministry of Finance.
A guideline was effected immediately such that it would standardize the financial management of SOEs in the entire investment process, and handle the problem of "poor project feasibility and lack of risk management."
However, China started to create a national standard for blockchain such that it can bring the building of a blockchain standard system from the top-level, and it is optimistic this exercise will be accomplished by the end of next year, according to Chinese state media reports. Chinese authorities are also aiming at putting into practice top-level, or top-down standards in order to compete smoothly in the global market.
