Sino-UK Standardization Working Group on Smart City held its second workshop in Yinchuan, the capital of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, on September 4th to 6th, discussing the data model, evaluation factors, technical reference models of smart city among other standardization issues. An MOU was signed between Standardisation Administration of China and British Standards Institution (BSI) on smart city standardization cooperation.
The symposium was organized by National Standardization General Working Group on Smart City and sponsored by Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. Both sides hoped they would complement each other with respective unique strengths in the area of smart city, thus making joint contribution to International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) and facilitating the establishment of international standards. The first meeting was held in early July in Britain.
