Artificial intelligence, especially generative AI, is gradually becoming a new engine for economic development, leading the trend of global technological innovation while reshaping various industries.

China has already published various policies, regulations and standards relating to AI. Most recently, in early July, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission (CAC), National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), and Standardization Administration of China (SAC) jointly issued the National Comprehensive Standardization System for Artificial Intelligence Industry (2024 Edition). MIIT also announced the establishment plan of the AI Standardization Technical Committee, the secretariat of which will be located at the China Academy of Information and Communication Technology, to expedite the formulation of AI standards in support of industry development.

A year ago, on July 13, 2023, a number of Chinese departments jointly issued China's first regulatory document on generative AI, the Interim Measures for the Administration of Generative AI Services. On the upcoming first anniversary of the release of the Interim Measures, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China is honoured to invite well-known experts, lawyers, consulting institutions and representatives from industries to discuss the current situation, challenges and future trends of the AI industry in depth and conduct a comprehensive analysis of AI development in light of recent developments. We look forward to your participation and work together to draw a more exciting blueprint for the future of the AI industry.
