China is set to release an ambitious 15-year blueprint that will lay out its plans to set the global standards for the next-generation of technologies. CNBC (April 26) quoted experts as saying the move could have wide-ranging implications for the power Beijing wields on the global stage in areas from artificial intelligence, to telecommunications networks and the flow of data. "China Standards 2035" is set to be released this year after two years of planning. Experts said it is widely seen as the next step, following the "Made In China 2025" global manufacturing plan — but this time, with a much larger focus on technologies that are seen as defining the next decade.
(Comment: China has been keen on expanding its global presence in the technology space so that it can set the standard. The Digital BRI was a major step in this direction. "China Standards 2035" is an obvious sequence.)
