China and Mongolia Deepening IP Cooperation and Exchanges

Recently, CNIPA Deputy Commissioner Gan Shaoning led a delegation to Mongolia and had a bilateral talk with Tsendiin Nyamdorj, Minister of Justice and Internal Affairs of Mongolia.

Gan Shaoning expressed thanks to Ministry of Justice and Internal Affairs of Mongolia for its high attention to and strong support for IP cooperation between China and Mongolia. He pointed out that China and Mongolia, linked by rivers and mountains, have maintained practical cooperation in IP and achieved gratifying results since they signed the inter-governmental agreement in 2005. They have conducted frequent interactions and good cooperation in China-Mongolia bilateral cooperation, China-Mongolia-Russia trilateral cooperation and under the “Belt and Road” Initiative. He hoped that both sides could take the visit as an opportunity to further expand and deepen practical cooperation in various fields based on existing achievements.

According to Tsendiin Nyamdorj, China and Mongolia have maintained close relationship and cooperation for long. China is the largest trading partner of Mongolia. Mongolia is willing to continue its active participation in the construction of the “Belt and Road”, actively promote the coordination of China’s “Belt and Road” Initiative and Mongolia’s “Development Road” Initiative, and carry out deeper mutually-beneficial cooperation in the fields of patent, trademark and geographical indication to promote more substantial results in the development of China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor.

During the talk, the two sides also exchanged ideas on IP protection in internet industry, future cooperation in the field of geographical indication and “Belt and Road” cooperation.(Translated from CNIPA Website Chinese Version)
