Proceedings of OECD-China Dialogues on Intellectual Property Rights Policy and Enforcement

 

Improving the protection of intellectual property rights (IPR) has been one of the main challenges faced by the Chinese government since its accession to the World Trade Organisation in December 2001. While the Chinese government has become increasingly aware of the importance of IPR protection in the context of a modernisation strategy based on openness to the global economy, innovation and technological upgrading, lack of expertise on advanced IPR policy issues has been a barrier to further progress. Improving IPR policy and its enforcement in China is of interest to OECD countries that have experienced fast growing economic relations with China through trade and foreign direct investment (FDI).

As part of the OECD’s outreach dialogue with China on a wide range of policy issues of mutual interest, two events on IPRs were organised jointly by the OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (DSTI) and relevant Chinese government agencies in Beijing in April 2004.

These proceedings aim to provide a synthesis of the two events, each of which was designed to discuss and address a set of policy issues of particular relevance and interest to Chinese policy makers and other stakeholders:

The broad objectives of these two events were to share the OECD's expertise and experience with China in order to:

  • Promote a better understanding among Chinese policy makers and other stakeholders of the increasing importance of IPR policies in promoting technological innovation and social and economic growth, in the context of the knowledge-based economy.
  • Contribute to China’s efforts to further improve IPR policy and enforcement in support of its modernisation strategy based on technological innovation, openness to foreign direct investment and further integration into the global economy.
