Chairman He Xuming said, "At the WSIS Forum 2017 he just attended, the topic mentioned most is smart city, which is also the focus that global politicians, economists, entrepreneurs, international organizations and United Nations agencies paid much attention to. But any standard is built on the base of cognition, attribute and definition. I agree with the opinion that "smart city should start from the development of IOT". Smart city cannot be considered as a real smart city without IOT. China is a country where IOT standards and technology are innovated, applied and practiced most. It is hoped that China will take the historical responsibility of establishing the guiding standards for smart city. Meanwhile, Standardization Administration of the P.R.C., social standards organizations and countries worldwide can jointly create guiding architecture standard of IOT smart city, thus promoting the construction of global smart city and also the healthy and orderly sustainable development of the IOT new economy of smart city."
