Register here for Managing IP’s webinar on the implications of the future of the Chinese IP system 

In association with GEN Law Firm, the live webinar will take place on December 8 at 1pm London time / 9pm Beijing time / 8am New York City time.

This webinar will focus on the most recent Chinese IP policy roadmap for 2021-2035. The speakers include Professor Ma Yide from the University of China Academy of Science - who also serves as a member of National People's Congress - and David Kappos, the former USPTO director. The hour-long discussion will consider the implications of the policy roadmap and evaluate what may be coming up in the next round of developments of the China IP system. 

The webinar will also explore:

  • Why this roadmap policy document is important?

  • How is it distinct from the previous China IP policy?

  • China is pro-IP - what does this mean for foreign companies?

  • Specifically, for trade secret protection and biopharmaceutical IP reforms, what may be coming up?

  • Both China and US now link IP to national security, what does this mean? 

The 60-minute webinar will be moderated by He Jing of GEN Law Firm and facilitated by Managing IP. The webinar will be followed by a Q&A session.

Prepare to learn more about the future of IP in China. Register to view the webinar now.
