People's Daily overseas edition:

The State Intellectual Property Office was restructured as part of China's deepening reform of Party and state institutions. Mr. Shen, could you inform us about the functions of the new agency and the progress of the restructuring? Thank you.

Shen Changyu:

In order to solve long-standing problems caused by the separated administration and overlapping enforcement of patents, trademarks and geographical indications, as well as improve the management mechanisms of IPRs, the CPC Central Committee decided to regroup the State Intellectual Property Office as part of the deepening reform of Party and state institutions.

The new agency has the following functions:

1.Promoting the implementation of the national intellectual property strategy, especially strengthening the creation, protection, and application of intellectual property.

2.Protecting intellectual property, facilitating the construction of an IPR protection system and offering guidance on the administrative law enforcement of patents and trademarks.

3.Conducting registration and administrative adjudication of trademarks, patents and geographical indications.

4.Coordinating foreign-related IP work and conducting foreign-related negotiations in the IP sector according to different categories.

We are making planned, progressive and disciplined efforts to advance the restructuring of the agency in accordance with the requirements of the CPC Central Committee.

Thank you.
