The Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Working Group represents a wide range of European interests in China’s IPR regulatory framework and its enforcement. Half of the working group’s member companies are from the goods sector with the other half from the services sector. Since its launch 15 years ago, the working group has witnessed China’s efforts to curb the dramatic increase of IPR violations, which affect the country’s economic order, innovation capacity and the rights of its consumers. The working group serves as a bridge between Chinese governmental agencies and judicial officials and European business. It offers its support primarily through recommendations aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of China’s IPR protection system.
