Experts highlight the importance of education and talent for the development of Internet standard system at a sub forum during the Second World Internet Conference on Friday.

The Internet standards have contributed and will contribute a lot to the fast development of the Internet, and we are expected to see various standards making various contributions in the future, said Yang Zeming, Secretary General of China Communications Standards Association.

Education and talent are crucially important to Internet standards, said Li Xing, a professor from Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University. "We need to educate the young generation and let them participate in the future development of Internet standard."

Li Xing's view was echoed by Yang Xiaoya with International Telecommunication Union TSB, who said that the work of setting Internet standards is also full of competition and only those that can come up with the best standard will survive.

"Although standards are important," said James Seng, CTO of Beijing Xianyu Shuma Tech. Co. Ltd, "we cannot work out standards only for the sake of standards."

China has witnessed a rapid development of its Internet industry over the past two decades. As of July 2015, the number of Internet users had reached 668 million, the most in the world, according to official figures. All cities and towns, and 93.5 percent of administrative villages in China now have access to the Internet.

The thriving Internet industry and the gigantic market potential have also bred countless Internet companies, and some of them, such as Baidu, Tencent and Alibaba, have become international goliaths.

Chinese authorities have attached more importance to the Internet, pledging to transform China from a big Internet nation to a great one. The Internet, with better management, will be more open to the world.

The Second World Internet Conference, the most high-profile Internet related event in China, is taking place in the picturesque water town of Wuzhen, Zhejiang province, Dec 16 to 18.
