China has announced its ambition at the National Standardization Conference held on Feb.24 to take the lead in high-tech international standards. China's Standardization Administration (SAC) will launch the promotion and applications of some national technologies standards within key countries and regions.

The technologies standards to be marketed cover the domains of electronic information, communications, high-speed rail, advanced equipment manufacture, international economy and technology cooperation, international engineering and construction and so forth.

"Currently, the developed countries and regions, such as the European Union, the United States and Japan are dominating the international standards," said Zhi Shuping, the chief of China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine(AQSIQ). He pointed out the fact that China is still not competitive enough in substantially taking part in the international standardization activities.

The counterstrategies would focus on the organizational communication within the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), such as undertaking callers and the secretariats of the technological committees and holding the corresponding posts of chief.

"Meanwhile, we will fully use the huge market of our country in order to add up to the competitive advantages on the global stage," said Ji Zhengkun, the SAC Administrator.

He also introduced the latest global promotion development of our national standards.

In 2010 China began to undertake another 13 secretariats of the international standardization technology departments, such as Traditional Chinese Medical Sciences. And China also submitted 57 proposals, ranking high of the ISO members list.

He stressed that the central government will intervene in the process to make a positive impact.
