IP rights are territorial, but innovative enterprises operate across borders. The conference provides a good platform where decision-makers can come together to learn, discuss and work with one another to support our innovators and entrepreneurs. We also welcome the conference theme of inclusiveness, development, cooperation and mutual benefit. IP is unique because as an intangible asset, it can be used by others without any loss to the original innovator - if the right IP strategies are put in place. We therefore look forward to the discussions on the various projects to promote greater IP collaboration among Belt and Road countries.
