On October 26, CNIPA Commissioner Shen Changyu was invited to attend and give a video speech in the IP20+ Global Intellectual Property Challenges Forum, organized by the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP), which was held in the margins of the Saudi G20 Presidency.
Shen Changyu outlined how the CNIPA worked actively amid the epidemic to protect applicants' rights and interests, support epidemic-related scientific and technological breakthroughs, facilitate market players to resume their business and production and strengthen international cooperation. He proposed improving global IP governance and promoting global innovation despite future challenges.
