China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) Commissioner Shen Changyu met with Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DPTO) Director General Sune Stampe Sørensen on January 17 in Beijing and jointly attended the China-Denmark IP Roundtable meeting.
During the talks, Shen and Sørensen informed each other of the latest development of their offices, and shared comments on Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH), examiner exchanges, trademark cooperation and a future joint symposium. Shen said that the friendly and pragmatic cooperation between the two sides has been on for several years, and fruitful results have been palpable in patent examination, PPH and other fields. He wished to expand the range of cooperation, take the cooperation to a more profound depth and consequently provide better and easier-to-use service to IP users of the two countries.
Sørensen said that China is an important trade partner of Denmark and its market is highly regarded by Danish companies. DPTO is willing to deepen collaboration and exchanges with CNIPA, and help Danish companies to understand China's IP system by holding roundtables and other events.
At the roundtable, relevant principals of CNIPA shared ideas with representatives including officials of DPTO, Danish businessmen and lawyers on issues such as revision of the Chinese Patent Law and trademark examination.2019-01-23
