East Asian countries are booming with both technological and demographic advances. They have traditionally developed their economies by being licensed foreign Information and Communications Technology (ICT) standards and using them to develop their home market and to export products. This paper proposes that East Asian countries should start to develop a leadership role in global ICT standardizations, even though their focuses are currently still primarily on developments in their own nations.
