China and UK to unite over IP at symposium

The only way is China, according to intellectual property minister Baroness Neville-Rolfe, who is leading the first ministerial delegation to the country, where she will attend the UK-China Symposium with UK brands.

RepreUnilever, Burberry and Penguin will be joining the minister on the trip to the Symposium, which is being held in Beijing with China’s State IP Office.

The visit aims to build a relationship between the countries for UK businesses that wish to export their IP to China, while ensuring they are better informed about protection and enforcement in China.

Baroness Neville-Rolfe said: “This symposium is going to be an unrivalled chance for Chinese and British businesses to discuss business issues with government officials and learn about IP in both of our countries.”

Stephen Phillips, China-Britain business council chief executive, said: “Protection of IP is important to every business that has invested time and effort in its development.”

“This week of activities will build upon the productive policy dialogue and address the practical implementation with companies and stakeholders throughout China,” he added.
