Ms. Liu Hua, Director of WOC, pointed out that the global IP filings remained strong and resilient against the backdrop of the big changes and the pandemic. The Global Innovation Index (GII) and the World Intellectual Property Indicators (WIPI) 2021 showed that the global R&D investments, venture capitals and the IP applications have further increased against the overall downward trend. The pandemic severely hit the traditional industries such as tourism, traval and transportation, but on the other hand, it has accelerated the emerging industries such as bio-medical, distance education, mobile payment and the Internet of Things. With the rapid development of artificial intelligence, big data, block-chain, cloud computing and the Metaverse, WIPO will address, negotiate and develop relevant new rules in oder to forge a balanced, inclusive, vibrant and forward-looking global IP ecosystem for the benefit of all.

Liu Hua pointed out that China, as an important integral part of the global IP ecosystem, accounting for almost half of the global total in terms of patent, trademark and industrial design applications by origin, has established itself as an innovation leader, ranking 12th in the GII 2021. Notably, with increasing importance attached by the Chinese government to IP and formulation of the top-designs for IP policies and systems, such as the 15-year Plan for the Building of an IPR Powerhouse and the 14th Five-Year Plan on IP, as outlined by the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in his Government Work Report 2022, China will embrace a promising future of innovation, creativity and IP undertakings.

Liu Hua welcomed China to participate in the global IP governance. WIPO and WOC would continue to tell the people-oriented Chinese IP stories, engage and support more extensively women, youth and SMEs in China, taking their ideas to markets and ensuring IP being a part of their life, aspiration and journey; continue to partner with Chinese stakeholders, aming to develop long-term mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation; continue to provide high quality IP services, knowledge and data to Chinese users, responding to their needs; and continue to support Chinese government to use IP as a policy tool to create jobs, attract investments, improve business competitiveness and ultimately contribute to growth and sustainable development.
