Key Focus

  • The more technical and technology standards are defined by Beijing, the more associated data will become subject to the Chinese government's various data localization and access policies."
    Some legislations in China appear to compel any company to comply with government requests for help with vaguely-defined "intelligence work."
    This is one reason that the U.S. and other countries have raised concerns about Huawei
  • Dai Hong, director of the second department of industrial standards of China's National Standardization Management Committee, was quoted by state-backed publication Xinhua as saying at that time that many of the patents and technical standards for next-generation technologies had not yet been formed.
    China's standards push
    China Standards 2035 gives the country a new impetus but over the past few years, the influence of the world's second-largest economy was already growing.
    "5G is a prominent example in so far as, 5G is the case we have seen the most aggressive companies not just to set standards at home but to actively shape global standards setting," Elsa Kania, adjunct senior fellow with the technology and national security program at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), told CNBC.
    5G refers to next-generation mobile networks that are seen as critical in supporting future infrastructure.
    Chinese firm Huawei, one of the leading players in 5G networking equipment, has also been a key player in standards setting
  • The BRI is also seen as one way China is able to spread its standards and influence.
    The more technical and technology standards are defined by Beijing, the more associated data will become subject to the Chinese government's various data localization and access policies.
    "The PRC (People's Republic of China) makes diplomatic agreements.such as memorandums of understanding
  • Adam Segal, director of the digital and cyberspace policy program at the Council on Foreign Relations, noted in a testimony to the same committee that standards have been written into memorandums of understanding with a number of nations.
    Developing economies such as Vietnam and Indonesia are likely to adopt those Chinese standards because "they are cheaper than Western alternatives and the draw of the Chinese market," Segal said.
    Data flows
    As China's influence on global technology grows, more and more questions about its access to data will emerge.
    "China's standards play overlaps with and intends to expand its strategy of asymmetrical access to data," Horizon Advisory's Picarsic said
