China integrates into the global intellectual property protection system

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has opened a representative office in China, reports Xinhua news agency.

Francis Gurry, Director General of the organization, called the event a "milestone", testifying to the deeper integration of the PRC into the global system of intellectual property protection.

At the end of May 2014, the State Intellectual Property Office of China received 8878 international applications, which is 23,2 more than last year's figure for the same period.

In terms of the number of applications, China in 2013, overtaking Germany, came in third place in the world.

The representation in China was for WIPO, uniting 187 countries, the fourth in the world. Similar structures have already been opened in Singapore, Japan and Brazil, and there is a coordination office in the USA.
