The third session of the 13th National People's Congress opened at the Great Hall of the People on the morning of May 22. CNIPA Commissioner Shen Changyu, Deputy Commissioners He Hua, Gan Shaoning, Liao Tao, Zhao Gang and Zhou Huiguo watched the live broadcast. They all believed that the "two sessions" this year were convened against the special background, which was of great significance. The Government Work Report delivered by Premier Li Keqiang inspired everyone. In particular, it is emphasized in the Report that "intellectual property protection will be strengthened". This fully reflects the high attention paid by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council to IP work and makes clear requirements on relevant tasks, which should be earnestly learnt and implemented.
Principals of the Patent Office and various organizations watched the live broadcast together. Various departments also tuned in to the opening meeting in different ways. (Translated from CNIPA Website Chinese Version)2020-05-25
