CNIPA and USPTO Hold Bilateral Talks and Sign a New Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation

Shen Changyu, Commissioner of the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), met with Kathi Vidal, Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on April 15 in Beijing. At the meeting, both offices introduced the latest progress of IP work in their countries respectively, exchanged views deeply on issues of mutual concern, and jointly signed a new version of the memorandum of understanding on cooperation between the two offices. CNIPA Deputy Commissioner Lu Pengqi participated in the meeting.

Shen said that IP cooperation is an important area for collaboration between China and the United States. In recent years, the two offices have upheld an open, pragmatic, and mutually beneficial attitude, and actively promoted the continuous development of China-U.S. IP exchanges and cooperation, achieving fruitful results in multiple fields. Last year, Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Joe Biden laid out the "San Francisco vision", charting the course for the development of China-U.S. relations during their meeting. China has attached great importance to IP cooperation with the United States, and Chinese Vice Premier Ding Xuexiang's meeting with you has strongly guided and promoted the bilateral IP cooperation. Shen hoped that the signing of this memorandum of understanding on cooperation will serve as an opportunity for both offices to jointly promote the deepening of IP cooperation, implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, and provide more convenient and efficient services for enterprises and rights holders in both countries. Read more
