U.S.-China IP Cooperation Dialogue 2013
In 2013, IP experts from the U.S. and China engaged in-depth discussions on the most complex and challenging IP issues facing China.
Following the acceleration of new scientific and technological developments and the transformation to global industries, intellectual property rights (IPR) are playing an increasingly important role as a strategic resource in international competition. Both U.S. and China IP systems need to be adjusted to adapt to the new realities. China is implementing an innovation-driven development strategy targeted at building China into a true innovation-oriented country by 2020, and unquestionably, IPR protection will play an important role during this process.
The experts unanimously agree the Dialogue is an important part of the bilateral exchanges between the United States and China on IPR matters, and will help the two countries address the new challenges together, deepen mutual understanding, and promote cooperation.

The experts expressed a range of views, including differences on some issues and consensus on others, and identified areas for further research.
The Dialogue generated the following forward-looking ideas and practices:
