"I believe autonomous driving technology brings challenges and opportunities to the Chinese auto industry. We should think ahead about the possible problems, and speed up the establishment of a legal framework regarding self-driven vehicles.

Several aspects should be considered. Our country's current laws and regulations should be studied and those that block the development of autonomous driving should be changed.

Self-driven vehicles can be a solution to traffic congestion and air pollution that many major cities are suffering from right now. Some pilot areas could be set up, such as the 5th and 6th ring roads in Beijing.

The development of autonomous driving should be considered to formulate industry policies, including a technology roadmap, industrial standards, safety practices, traffic enforcement and insurance responsibility.

The rights and responsibility of automakers, drivers, pedestrians, and insurance companies should be distinguished clearly."
