Abstract: Multinational Corporations (MNCs) affect China's standardization through participation in standard setting, education for standardization and other ways to seek commercial profits. MNCs' participation accelerates the speed and strengthens the transparency and internationality of China's standardization, however, it weakens the sovereignty of China's standardization and makes it harder to reach agreement in standardization. In order to achieve a win-win situation, this paper attempts to propose that Chinese stakeholders should keep a more open mind to MNCs, and MNCs should keep more patience to Chinese standardization, moreover there should be more communication and collaboration between Chinese stakeholders and MNCs.
