Most results over the past decade have shown progress. The number of international applications filed under China’s Patent Cooperation Treaty continues to grow, ranking second worldwide for 2017. © Image | Baidu “China has a reason to have the largest patent office, largest trade market office, largest design office in the world, with the extraordinary support from the state leadership,” said Francis Gurry, director general of the World Intellectual Property Organization. Officials at the conference said the nation has made great strides in enhancing IP protection. Some expressed hopeful expectations over the future of China’ s IP protection “When we think about it on a deeper level, we would really hope for stronger protection of trade secrets to enforce our rights. We would also like to see higher compensations in patent entrenchment proceedings,” said Udo Meyer, senior vice-president of BASF AG. Commissioner Shen Changyu told the meeting that China will unwaveringly play the role of defender, participant and active builder of international rules on intellectual property rights. He added that the nation will protect legitimate IP rights of domestic and foreign enterprises according to law, thus helping China to further open up. © Image | Baidu Our HACOS can help you!!! 1 Apply for a Chinese Trademark HACOS would teach you how to apply for a Chinese Trademark, which could smooth your business way in China. © Image | Baidu You need to know: Application Procedure Trademark Registration Search Check whether the application trademark is duplicate or similar with existed ones.
