At present, China is in the critical stage of transforming from a quantitative monetary policy to a price-based monetary policy. The implementation of a quantitative-price mixed monetary policy can further improve the effect of monetary policy and interest rate regulation and maintain the stable operation of the macro economy. Based on the current economic situation, this article conducts experiments to prove the relationship between its monetary policy and the term structure of interest rates. To this end, this article first analyzes and compares the final effects of monetary policy on regional economies with the aid of an analysis framework that can simultaneously take into account the individuality of regional economies, the spillover effects between regional economies and the overall nature of monetary policy. Then, this article further combines the current background of interest rate marketization and monetary policy from quantity-oriented price-oriented changes. Focusing on the interest rate channel, it deeply analyzes the regional effects and formation of China's monetary policy under the new situation. First of all, on the basis of combing and summarizing relevant literature, find the expansion space for evaluating the regional effect of China's monetary policy. Experimental research results show that the term structure of interest rates is playing an increasingly important role in monetary policy. Combining the study of the term structure of interest rates with monetary policy and examining the relationship between them can not only promote the role of interest rates in macro-control, but also have important implications for improving the forward-looking and effectiveness of monetary policy.
