Abstract

This paper takes the urban agglomeration composed of 26 cities in the Yangtze River Delta as an example, discusses the impact of digital finance on the improvement of regional innovation ability empirically through dynamic panel regression measurement analysis. The results show that digital finance can significantly promote the improvement of regional innovation ability, and the promotion role of each sub dimension of digital finance is heterogeneous, in which the promotion role of coverage is the largest, the promotion role of use depth is the second, and the role of financial digitization is the smallest. Further using GMM method, it is found that in the impact mechanism of digital finance on regional innovation ability, regional credit resource allocation, urban infrastructure construction and residents' consumption level all play a significant intermediary role, and the intermediary effects of the three decrease in turn.
