Keyi Wang, Zitong Zhao


At present, China's digital economy has entered a mature stage of development. This paper, relying on the real panel data of provinces and cities from 2016 to 2020, uses the fixed effect model and robust analysis to conduct empirical tests, enrich the statistical results and provide effective policy advice. The results show that digital economy plays a significant positive role in promoting rural economic development in China, and can effectively promote agricultural construction in digital infrastructure, digital technology and e-commerce development. The government has adopted digital governance to ensure coordinated development and revitalize rural development.
