IPC APEX EXPO 2022 SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE to contribute to the upgrading of relative IPC standards, as well as participate in interna- tional standardization activities. At the same time, we are carrying out various discussions, research, and activities to improve the under- standing and application of IPC standards. Yu: In recent years, you have participated in the development of global standards on behalf of CRRC and China's manufacturing industry. Please tell us about the experience and signifi- cance. Chen: My colleagues and I have long been actively engaged in international standard- ization activities of IEC (International Elec- trotechnical Commission), ISO (Interna- tional Organization for Standardization), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), and IPC (association connecting electronics industries), with focus on electric technology and reliability, smart manufactur- ing, and sustainable development. Interna- tional and industry advanced standards are very important to ensure product quality and reliability, and play a key role in international- ization and market competition. With open, collaborative, and integrated innovation becoming the mainstream, connectivity and synergy across supply chain, industrial chain and value chain have become the trend. Now- adays, standards are oen established before the market matures. us, it is even more urgent to actively participate in international and industrial standardization activities and keep track of the development frontier and dynamic trends. Yu: ank you very much for your participa- tion in our interview. I hope the pandemic will end as soon as possible and you can better participate in the development and promo- tion of global standards. Chen: ank you.
