It is necessary to further establish and improve systems that are suitable for China's national conditions and its own development, and promote China's intellectual property industry to a higher level.


Zhou Jiangtao, District Mayor, stated that Futian has held two consecutive thematic forums for CIPO, with the aim of building a platform for academia and industry to brainstorm and jointly promote innovative "seeds" such as CIPO, which can take root and sprout in China, Shenzhen, and Futian. Futian District will make greater efforts to build a highland of intellectual property talents, continuously optimize the development ecology of intellectual property, and strive to irrigate the "flower of innovation" and bear the "fruit of industry".

Director Li Zhong delivered a speech and announced the opening of the forum. He emphasized that holding the Shenzhen Intellectual Property Chief Operating Officer Forum is an important measure to implement the requirements of the National Intellectual Property Strategy Outline and build a benchmark city for intellectual property. It is also an important exploration for Futian District to strengthen the cultivation of intellectual property talents and stimulate innovation, creation, and high-quality development of entrepreneurship on a larger scale, I hope the forum can promote the Chief Operating Officer of Intellectual Property to become a talent reserve for more enterprises, especially technology enterprises, providing talent support for high-quality creation of an intellectual property strong city in Shenzhen, and providing "Shenzhen experience" for accelerating the construction of an intellectual property strong country.

Director Zhang Pingzhong's concluding speech at the closing ceremony pointed out that this forum has three obvious characteristics: firstly, the topic is international, and the discussion topic closely revolves around international scientific and technological innovation trends and the global intellectual property system, and international experts are invited to give lectures and share; The second is the diversification of forms, with both online expert lectures, on-site expert speeches, and exciting and enthusiastic round table forums, which are novel and unique in form; The third is the practicality of content, based on the current situation of intellectual property talent cultivation in Chinese enterprises, focusing on the development needs of technological innovation enterprises, proposing forward-looking and strategic development concepts, which are targeted and practical.

Secretary Xia Kunshan's speech at the closing ceremony of the forum: Intellectual property talents are the first resource for developing the intellectual property industry, a prerequisite for high-quality development of intellectual property, and a strategic support for building a strong intellectual property country. The Shenzhen Intellectual Property Chief Operating Officer Forum was held in Futian, which is not only a need of the times, but also a reality, and also a need for industrial development. This year's forum added international elements for the first time, inviting political and industry experts from countries such as the United States, Israel, and Germany to discuss development, share experiences, and envision a vision.





The attending leaders jointly unveiled the Futian District Intellectual Property Protection Center&Futian District Intellectual Property One Stop Service Window.


The China National Intellectual Property Administration will, in accordance with the "14th Five Year Plan", carry out in-depth research and practice on intellectual property protection systems in new fields and formats such as the Internet, big data and artificial intelligence, and take multiple measures to help the development of emerging fields. This forum is another development and sublimation of Hong Kong Intellectual Property Exchange (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hong Kong Intellectual Property Exchange), following the successful creation of the CIPO Forum for Intellectual Property in Futian District in 2021. It is an important manifestation of the specialization, internationalization, and intelligence of intellectual property in Futian District.

30 to 40 years ago, there were no IT positions or teams in China, but with the development of the Internet era, IT positions and teams have flourished. In the era of the digital economy today, IP positions and IP teams have become standard equipment for enterprise development and internationalization. We believe that the intellectual property industry is a common theme and historical mission we face together. Development is the first priority, and talent is the first resource. To run the intellectual property industry well, it is inseparable from the support of high-level intellectual property talents and the position of Chief Operating Officer of Intellectual Property.



Warmly congratulate the second Shenzhen Intellectual Property Chief Operating Officer CIPO Forum (Futian) on its complete success in 2022! Thank you all for your support and attendance!
