The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Commission on Intellectual Property is teaming up with the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) to co-host a conference entitled “Increasing Economic and Business Competitiveness Using Intellectual Assets” in Beijing on October 26.
Organized principally for Chinese policymakers, corporate representatives and intellectual property (IP) professionals, the event will bring in top speakers from China and beyond, including Tian Lipu, Commissioner of the State Intellectual Property Office of China (SIPO), David Koris, Global Head of Intellectual Property for Shell, senior figures in the U.S. and European patent offices, and IP specialists from major companies.
Talks will focus on how IP can help businesses and be used in government strategies to boost economic competitiveness, promote innovation and attract investment.
“We’re delighted to be working with CCPIT to organize this conference. Intellectual property is a crucial tool for businesses in today’s economy, and we hope this event will stimulate a fruitful exchange between businesses and government officials from inside and outside China on some key intellectual property issues facing businesses and governments,” said David Koris, who is also Chair of the ICC Commission on Intellectual Property.
Shell, Beiqi Foton Motor Co., State Nuclear Power Technology Cooperation, Monsanto and General Electric are just a few of the businesses whose high-level IP specialists will speak at the event.
