Yunnan: Plan Rolls Out to Spur Innovation


Yunnan province recently rolled out an intellectual property protection plan for 2016-20, aimed at increasing the quantity and quality of local patents. By 2020, over 60 percent of patents are projected to be industrialized and the local business climate will be improved, due to stronger enforcement capacities and efficiency and improved IP services, according to the plan. The government will give priority support to research in key sectors including biopharmaceuticals, healthcare, tourism, culture, information technology, modern agriculture and logistics, new materials, and advanced manufacturing.
