Payment industry from left to right
There is no doubt that the development of my country's payment industry has led the world and is known as one of the "Four New Inventions". However, if we phone number list look back five years, the development of my country's overall payment industry is still far behind developed countries such as Europe, America, Japan and South Korea. .
