Liu expressed welcome to the visit of Mr. Gurry. Then he said, China witnesses great improvement on IPR work in recent years. Relevant governmental departments actively carry out the Outline of National IPR Strategy and push the in-depth development of national IPR strategy.

Since its access to World Intellectual Property Organization in 1980, China's National Copyright Administration (NCA) has kept good and stable cooperative relation with WIPO. And WIPO has offered strong supports and helps to China on the formulation of Chinese Copyright Law, the exploration of international space, the training of copyright-related professionals, and so on.

In particular, WIPO and NCA have jointly launched many important cooperative projects and achieved favorable results, for instance, holding international copyright forum in Beijing, conducting investigation on the contribution rate of copyright industry to domestic economy, and the appraisal of Copyright Creation Golden Award in China.

Liu added, China is not only a big nation of copyright creation, but a big nation brave in assuming responsibilities and obligations. And China will spare no efforts to combat piracy in new media area.

Mr. Gurry said, China is a big nation in IP field and plays an important role in international copyright sector. At present, various new issues on IPR protection occur in the world, which needs the joint force of all countries to confront with.

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.
