The standards system for supporting high-quality development is based on the development concept of “innovation, coordination, green, openness, and sharing” and supports the all-round, high-quality development of China’s economy, society, and ecology. Conducting strategic research on this standards system plays a basic and leading role in promoting economic development, ecological environment quality, and social governance level, and is significant for meeting people’s needs for a better life. In this article, we analyze the concept of high-quality development as well as the connotation and characteristics of the standards system for supporting high-quality development, and study the difference between the high-quality development standards system and existing systems. Moreover, this study presents the main directions and implementation paths for the standards system by 2025 and 2035, focusing on agriculture, manufacturing, services, social governance, ecological civilization, and other key areas. Furthermore, we propose corresponding countermeasures in aspects of top level design, standardization policies, standardization capability improvement, and standardization personnel training, hoping to provide references for the development of the aforementioned key areas and for the decision making of relevant government departments.
The coordinated development of energy, economic society, and ecological environment has always been one of the major issues facing China. Although achievements have been made in some regions in China regarding the coordinated development, varied contradictions and problems still exist. Therefore, China should consider these significant differences in regional development while promoting energy revolution. This study elaborates the significance of regional energy revolution and analyzes the current status of economic society, energy, and ecological environment in the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei region, Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, old industrial bases, the central region, energy-rich areas, and the Southwest in China. To promote the regional energy revolution, China should strengthen the top-level design for energy revolution and clarify the strategic objectives and key tasks for medium- and long-term development. A mode of well-planned and coordinated development should be established by clarifying the functions of regional energy revolution. The pilots of regional energy revolution should be promoted, thus to explore an efficient mechanism for the energy revolution. Moreover, the responsibilities of the regional governments should be clarified and an assessment and supervision mechanism should be established, so as to ensure that the regional energy revolution achieves expected effects.
The whole industrial chain standards system of modern agriculture is a new standards system that is guided by market demand and integrates all production factors and the entire production process of agriculture; it is developed against the background of agricultural supply-side reforms in China and has become a cornerstone for the rural revitalization strategy and the high-quality development of China’s agriculture. In this article, we first summarize the demand for the whole industrial chain standards system and analyze the opportunities and challenges faced by China in the construction of this standards system. Subsequently, we explore the connotation and guidelines of the standards system and propose a three-tier framework for this system. Furthermore, a development path and countermeasures are proposed. Specifically, the construction of the whole industrial chain standards system should focus on five aspects: formulation and revision of key standards, cultivation of standardization personnel, innovation of the agricultural standardization service mode, internationalization of industry standards, and establishment of industry associations’standards. Moreover, to construct the whole industrial chain standards system, China should establish a coordinated working mechanism, strengthen demonstrations, conduct effect evaluation of the standardization, and improve its supervision system.
China has a vast territory, so the energy resource endowments of different regions in the country are significantly varied. Promoting regional energy revolution based on local conditions is an effective way to break the bottlenecks that restrict China’s energy development. This study analyzes the current situation of energy development from the aspects of energy production, consumption, and distribution, and investigates the differences regarding energy consumption intensity and the driving force for energy consumption growth in the core regions (i.e., the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei region, Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, old industrial bases, the Central China, energy-rich areas, and Southwest China). The medium- and long-term energy development trends and strategic focuses of these regions by 2035 are analyzed. Specifically, the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei region should focus on the coordinated development of energy, economy, and environment; an energy system with regional linkage should be formed and optimized in the Yangtze River Delta; the Pearl River Delta can strive to build itself as a clean energy production, storage, and transportation base; economic transformation should be promoted in the old industrial bases through value increment and diversification of energy resources; Central China should establish itself as an integrated energy hub; the energy-rich areas should build itself as a green and sustainable energy security base; and clean energy consumption should be encouraged in Southwest China. To coordinate energy development in various regions, China should fully consider the significant differences in local conditions, promote social development and ecologicalprotection with the regional energy revolution, and encourage regional cooperation in energy.
