Intellectual property (IP) laws protect human intellectual achievements by granting rights holders the exclusive privilege to control and obtain benefits for what they have created. Effective intellectual property rights (IPR) enforcement is crucial for innovating and competing in any market and for the facilitation of transnational partnership agreements. If there is a lack of trust in IPR protection, companies and individuals will be reluctant to introduce their most valuable IP and will not be willing to develop cutting-edge IP creations. 

The Intellectual Property Rights Working Group represents a wide range of European interests in China’s IP regulatory framework and its enforcement of IPR. With a presence in Beijing, Shanghai and South China, the working group serves as a platform for companies to share best practices on IP matters. It is a bridge between China’s IP authorities and European business, and offers support primarily through recommendations aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of China’s IPR protection system.
