2nd UK-China Intellectual Property Symposium on 1 September

The Government of the United Kingdom (UK) today announced the second UK-China Intellectual Symposium will take place on 1 September, the latest in a series of high level international events to promote and protect intellectual property across borders to foster growth.

Hosted by the UK Intellectual Office (IPO) and the Chinese State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) the Symposium will be held in Beijing. Prime Minister David Cameron and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang agreed to hold this summit during their meeting in December 2013.

The UK-China IP Symposium will provide an opportunity for businesses from both countries to engage directly with government officials to make it easier for them to navigate the Chinese and UK intellectual systems. The aims are to improve the knowledge of UK and Chinese businesses of our respective intellectual property systems and create a public dialogue on the emerging challenges and changing landscape of intellectual property

Viscount Younger of Leckie, UK Intellectual Minister, said, “An effective IP system is increasingly important for helping to promote and to deliver innovation and growth. The symposium is an important opportunity for UK and Chinese businesses to take a real leap forward in how they work with the IP systems in both countries. This will help open up further the business relationship with China, a key trading partner in the UK’s programme for economic growth.”

The all-day event will be opened by Lord Younger, the UK IP Minister and Commissioner Shen Changyu of the Chinese State Intellectual Office. The panel sessions will bring together IP officials and senior members from both countries. A number of other UK-China IP events will be held throughout the week across China.

The symposium is 1 of many events this year (2014) that will bring together an international community of senior IP leaders and experts. In June 2014, the UK along with OHIM and the European Commission, will host the first international IP Enforcement Summit at Westminster Central Hall. The summit will provide a chance to strengthen and build new partnerships to improve international enforcement activities, identify and discuss new and emerging IP challenges in the digital world and help create a more effective IP enforcement system that will support and boost economic growth

Lord Younger added, “Intellectual issues have moved from the edges of our economic policy to centre stage. With 10% of global trade estimated to be in counterfeits, tackling IP crime and establishing effective enforcement is more important than ever and is a key element of a successful IP system. The Enforcement Summit is a rare opportunity for collaboration and innovation with a truly international delegate list from all sides of the debate to optimise the of an effective enforcement regime.”
