Based on the sample data of 11 prefecture-level cities in Jiangxi Province from 2011 to 2020, this paper uses text mining technology to extract the keyword frequency related to digital transformation in government reports to construct the digital transformation index of manufacturing industry. This paper empirically explores the influence of government support and scientific and technological development level on the digital transformation of manufacturing enterprises.The results show that government support and technology development level significantly promote the digital transformation of manufacturing industry.Through the robustness test, the regression results are still consistent. The mechanism analysis finds that the government support and the level of scientific and technological development can promote the digital transformation of manufacturing enterprises by influencing the credit level of financial institutions.
