Standardization is of great significance in supporting the blockchain technology and management innovation, promoting the development of digital economy and establishing a strong nation on networks, Dr. Tian noted in his address.


Enhancing the blockchain standardization work is the important basis for adapting to the rapid development of blockchain technology and cultivating the new industrial strengths, and the essential route for leading the deeply integrated development of blockchain with other sectors. It is also the effective means to ensure the safe and normative development of blockchain, and the key driving force to coordinate the industrial development of blockchain technology at both national and international level, said Dr. Tian.


He emphasized that we should put the National Standardization Development Outline in place, and focus on priorities such as top design, key tasks, implementation and application, as well as international breakthroughs of blockchain standardization work. He added that taking the establishment of SAC/TC 590 as a milestone and new starting point for national blockchain standardization work, we should comprehensively strengthen the institutional, system, capacity and work style building in the next step.


The meeting, held in hybrid form, was attended by leaders from Standards Technical Management Department of SAMR and relevant departments of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and members of the technical committee.
