Thank you very much for your detailed response to my colleague's question earlier about intellectual property concerns among foreign companies. Could you put it very simply: Do you recognize any of their concerns?

Shen Changyu:

Thank you for your question. China began to establish and develop its intellectual property rights protection system during the implementation of the reform and opening up policies. In no more than four decades, much progress has been achieved in this regard. Intellectual property rights infringement can be seen worldwide, with various forms and levels of severity at different stages of evolution. However, the Chinese government has demonstrated strong resolve and taken effective measures to protect intellectual property in accordance with the law in past years. The improvement in China's environment for intellectual property protection has been widely acknowledged by the international community. In my prior report, I introduced the measures China has taken to crack down on infringement activities, including those measures in administrative law enforcement and judicial protection. I'm convinced that China's environment for intellectual property protection will become increasingly favorable in the future. Thank you. 

Xi Yanchun:

Every year in late April, Mr. Shen and other officials from the Intellectual Property Office will elaborate on the progress China has made in intellectual property protection, as well as China's determination and future plans related to intellectual property protection. We appreciate your continued attention to China's protection of intellectual property. Thanks to our spokesman, and thank you all. That's all for today's press conference.
