The Commissioner of the State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) Mr. Shen Changyu was present and gave an opening speech, during which he pointed out that protection of innovation was a core issue under the current national policy of accelerating the establishment of a strong IP country, and enterprises as the entities undertaking innovation had an increasingly important role to play to this cause. He recognised that PPAC had contributed much as an effective bridge between the government and enterprises in China since its founding 13 years ago, and hoped that the association would further contribute by continuing to grow and develop in this respect.
