With the promoting of the Belt and Road Initiative, China has gradually shifted from output of products to "going out" in all aspects of products, engineering, technology and standards. Standardization plays the fundamental and strategic role in the construction of the Belt and Road. As far as urban and rural planning is concerned, the compatibility of standard system between China and the nations along the Belt and Road is not well enough, which has become the main factor restricting the Chinese enterprises' overseas investment and project contracting out. Based on the study of the process, current situation and future development trend of standardization of urban and rural planning in West Asian countries, this paper focuses on the main problems faced by the application of China's urban and rural planning standards in West Asian countries by analyzing the differences between the urban and rural planning administration system and planning system in West Asia and China. And it's proposed to enhance the adaptability of urban and rural planning standards in Western Asia by strengthening the localization of China's urban and rural planning system. In addition, this paper puts forward some countermeasures and suggestions to promote the "going out" of China's planning standards for different subjects, such as the government, industry organizations, enterprises and so on.
