China has laid out a bold roadmap to build a powerful country in intellectual property rights (IPR).

The roadmap, titled Guidelines for Building a Powerful Intellectual Property Nation (2021-2035), has set a series of goals for IPR.

By 2025, remarkable progress is expected to be made toward building a powerful country in IPR, according to a release jointly issued by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council on September 22.

The added value of patent intensive industries and copyright industries shall have accounted for 13 percent and 7.5 percent of China's GDP respectively by 2025.

By that time, the total annual import and export amount of intellectual property royalties is expected to reach 350 billion RMB, and the number of high-value invention patents per 10,000 people is expected to reach 12.

Meanwhile, IPR protection will be more stringent, and social satisfaction on IPR protection will reach a relatively high level in the next five years.

The guideline maps out a number of key tasks including building an IPR protection system that supports world-class business environment, establishing an IPR market operation mechanism that encourages innovation, and stepping up participation in global IPR governance.

To build a powerful intellectual property nation is an important strategic deployment made by the CPC, a necessity for building a modern socialist country, and an important foundation for constructing a new development pattern, said Shen Changyu, commissioner of the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA).


Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, China has made historic achievements in IPR protection, and the awareness of the entire society to respect and protect IPR has significantly improved.

The number of domestic invention patents per 10,000 people has reached 15.8 by the end of 2020, quadrupled from 2012.

"In recent years, China has stepped up efforts in an unprecedented way to protect IPR," said a relevant person in charge of CNIPA, adding that the country plans to further boost the level and efficiency of IPR protection.

China would accelerate IPR legislation on emerging industries such as big data, artificial intelligence and gene technology, and enhance international law enforcement cooperation in the field of IPR, according to the guideline.

The roadmap also has set the goals for the next fifteen years. By 2035, China's comprehensive competitiveness in IPR should be among the world's top tier, with the country taking part in the global governance of IPR in an all-round and multi-dimensional way.
