China’s IP plan: ambitious and practical

The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) released its Fourteenth Five-Year Plan for Patent and Trademark Examination (the “plan”) in January 2022. The plan outlines its work for 2021-2025, and aims to create greater alignment with the objectives of other higher-level government plans, such as the Outline of Construction of Competitive Intellectual Property State (2021-2035) and the Fourteenth Five-Year Plan for the Protection and Utilization of Intellectual Property.
