Conference Background:Since May 2017, China Food and Drug Administration, the General Office of the Central Committee of the Communist party of China and the General Office of State Council have successively issued the Regarding the Solicitation of Related Policies on encouraging the Protection of Drugs and Medical Devices Innovation and protecting the rights and interests of innovators (Consultation Draft) and the Opinions on deepening the reform of the review and approval system and encouraging pharmaceuticals and medical device innovation. These polices make deployment for advancing the reform of the examination and approval system for pharmaceuticals and medical devices and promoting of the adjustment of industrial structure and technological innovation, which clarified the establishment of drug Patent Linkage System, the development of pilot projects on Pharmaceutical Patent Term Compensation System and improvement and implement of Pharmaceutical Regulatory Data Protection Systems and other pharmaceutical innovation positive measures. On December 5, 2018, the State Council executive meeting adopted the Amendment of the Patent Law of the People's Republic of China (Draft) and consulted with the public on January 4, 2019. Relevant persons pointed out that the revision of the Patent Law is an important part of promoting the implementation of the relevant supporting rules of the Drug Registration System. The Pharmaceutical Experimental Data Protection System, the Patent Term Compensation, and the Patent Linkage System are expected to be improved , clarified and implemented with the revision of the Patent Law. At the same time, along with accelerating the construction of a strong IP country and promoting the reform and development of relevant IP field, on January 1, 2019, the IP Court of the Supreme People's Court was unveiled in Beijing, which further strengthen the judicial protection of IP in China and provide a strong judicial guarantee for China to create a medical innovation environment and promote the innovation and development of domestic and foreign pharmaceutical companies.

On the other hand, with the rapid development of pharmaceutical industry in the world, China officially joined ICH (International Conference on Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use) in 2017 and participate in the global competition in line with the highest international standards. In 2018, the FDA of US approved the listing of 59 new molecular entities, breaking the historical record that had been dormant for many years. In China, National Medical Products

Administration (NMPA) has also approved the listing of 48 new drugs as never before. Of the 48 new drugs, 38 are imported and 10 are domestically produced. Enter of foreign pharmaceutical companies, going out of Chinese pharmaceutical companies, and commercial cooperation between domestic and foreign pharmaceutical companies, the increase in patent applications, patent authorization, patent infringements, invalid litigation, and technology transfer have made IP protection such as patents, trade secrets, and trademarks, and the cultivation of high-value patents and risk prevention become the focus of pharmaceutical companies. The pharmaceutical field is one of the most interdependent technical areas on IP protection, especially patent protection. Familiarity with IP protection policies, Drug Regulatory Systems, patent examination standards and differences, and the judicial and administrative procedures for IP protection in major countries and regions and emerging markets around the world, improving IP Management System, standardizing IP System of enterprises, improving IP protection of core technologies, and strengthening abroad layout of IP are the basis for improving domestic and foreign pharmaceutical companies to participate in global competition.

In this context, 4th China Pharmaceutical IP Summit 2019(CPIPS2019)will continue to build high-quality, high-participation, high-time international cooperation, learning, sharing and exchange platforms for domestic and foreign pharmaceutical IP practitioners. The summit invites domestic and foreign pharmaceutical IP practitioners to discuss the dynamics of industry regulatory policies, hot and difficult issues, case analysis, corporate practice experience and development trends. In this way, it promotes industry exchanges and interactions and promotes the innovative development of China's biomedical industry.
