The Shenzhen Commercial Bureau is cooperating with the Bank of China, Agricultural Bank, ICBC and other financial institutions in the testing.

The first mass testing of e-CNY has already taken place in October 2020. It also took place in Shenzhen, during which residents made 140,000 transactions worth 18.2 million yuan.
