Ministers hold meeting to expand China-Britain cooperation


BEIJING  - Chinese and British trade ministers have vowed to improve economic ties  between the two countries and expand cooperation during the 13th conference of  the China-UK Joint Economic and Trade Commission held in Beijing on  Friday.
With the China-Britain relations in "Golden Era", the commission aims  to implement the consensus reached by leaders of the two countries on economic  and trade cooperation at the beginning of the year, pushing for new progress in  cooperation in trade, investment and the World Trade Organization (WTO), said  Zhong Shan, China's minister of commerce.
Echoing Zhong's words, British  International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said Britain hopes the two countries will  strengthen policy coordination, develop new growth points in trade and  investment, and reach agreements on higher-level economic ties.
On trade  frictions between China and the United States, Zhong said the U.S.-ignited trade  war seriously violated WTO rules and represented unilateralism and trade  bullying, and the U.S. smear in China's intellectual property rights (IPRs)  protection is not in line with the fact.
There is no winner in a trade war,  Zhong said, stressing that China does not want a trade war but is not afraid of  one, and will resolutely defend the interests of the country and its  people.

It is lucky for Chen Jun to began his career in the IP industry 14 years ago when the first group of IP managers for businesses appeared on the stage in China and he has been in the industry.

It was this “Whampoa Military Academy” for IP that educated China’s first batch of corporate IP management personnel. Many of these engineers left Foxconn in the years since.
