China committed to IP rights protection


China firmly maintains strict protection of intellectual property rights, ensures the rights of all enterprises are safeguarded in accordance with the law, and works to build an inviting environment for business and innovation, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.

Xi reinforced the stance in a congratulatory message to the 2018 Belt and Road high-level conference on intellectual property rights, a two-day event that kicked off on Tuesday in Beijing.

The China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative has seen wide recognition and active participation from the international community to yield productive outcomes, he said.

Under the principles of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, China is willing to work with all parties to build the initiative into a road toward peace, prosperity, opening-up, innovation and connectivity between different civilizations, he said.

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.
