Xi Sends Congratulatory Letter to Conference On IP for B&R Countries


Chinese President Xi Jinping has sent a congratulatory letter to the 2018 high-level conference on intellectual property (IP) for countries along the Belt and Road, which opened in Beijing on August 28th.

China has carried forward the Silk Road spirit and proposed to jointly develop the Belt and Road Initiative, which has won wide recognition and seen active participation among relevant countries and the international community and has yielded substantial achievement, Xi said.

Xi emphasized that the IP system plays a crucial role in promoting the joint development of the Belt and Road.

China unswervingly provides strict IP protection, ensures all enterprises' IP rights are protected according to law, and is working to build a favorable environment for business and innovation, he said.

Xi hopes that parties at the conference can enhance communication and cooperation for mutual benefits, push for more effective protection and use of IP rights, and jointly develop the road of innovation to benefit people of all countries.

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.
