Wang GuoGang pointed out that in the past 70 years, there are six principles in the developments China's finance: 1.Economic development as the top priority; 2. Maintenance of the order of financial operation; 3. The principle of "taking me as the mainstay"; 4. Following the actual situation of the country; 5. Serving the real economy; 6.The bottom line of non-systemic financial risks.
