The development of financial IC card in China is primarily policy-driven. On March 15, 2011, the People's Bank of China issued the PBOC's Opinions on Promoting the Application of Financial IC Cards, which stimulated the transformation of national bank equipment to support financial IC cards, and required the ATMs of national commercial banks to accept financial IC cards by the end of 2012, and all networking GPTs that accept bank cards to accept financial IC cards by the end of 2013.
