China asserted that the global development of 5G networks would not be possible “without cooperation or consultation” between the various actors in the sector due to the “complex” international situation.
In his speech at the opening ceremony of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai, Chinese Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology, Liu Lehong, called for “joint efforts” on the part of the parties involved in the development and deployment of these networks.
Establish international standards
“We must talk with each other to find a way for us all to set international standards,” he said, stressing those related to cybersecurity, which is one of the reasons why the fifth generation networks that China is developing raise international doubts.
The representative of the Chinese government stressed that the cooperation “will increase the level of development of the fifth generation network globally,” and will allow greater integration in areas such as supply chains that have been damaged in recent months due to the Corona pandemic.
Brake the barriers
Liu revealed that China will participate in GSM and other international platforms to “try to break down barriers to the development of industry” while searching for new business models and accelerating the deployment of 5G networks.
The Chinese official stressed that the Chinese model for developing and disseminating these technologies is “successful,” stressing that Beijing will continue to make “all proactive efforts” to promote the fifth generation.
