The 2018 Cross-strait Patent Forum was held on December 11 and 12 in Taipei. With a focus on the patenting trends and strategies of new technologies, the agenda was designed for the top professionals across the Taiwan Strait with a global vision, and hosted discussions on hot topics. The most outstanding representatives from industry, government and academia all gathered up to share their experiences and exchange ideas.
The attending guests from mainland China included Deputy Director-General Xu Cong of the Patent Office of the National Intellectual Property Administration(CNIPA), Vice President Ma Hao of the All-China Patent Agents Association (ACPAA), and Deputy Director Liu Jian of the International Cooperation Department of the CNIPA. On the Taiwan side, participants included Secretary-General Tsai Lien-sheng of the Chinese National Federation of Industries (CNFI); TIPO Director-General Hung Shu-min, and former Premier Chang San-cheng attended the occasion to give a themed speech. A total of 400 patent professionals across the strait zealously took part.
Since 2008 till its 11th term this year, the Cross-strait Patent Forum has been held every year across the strait, with Taiwan and mainland China taking turns being the host. In this way, the two sides have been able to exchange ideas fully in the IPR field. This year’s topics for discussion include “AI visions and strategies,” “patent policy and strategies in an AI era,” “patent examination for new technologies,” “opportunities and challenges of patent agencies in an AI era,” “global patent strategies for new technologies,” “international patent litigation strategies for new technologies,” and “challenges and strategies of the patent litigation of new technologies.” Experts with practical experiences all shared their remarkable thoughts at the forum, and most of the participants noted that the event was worth attending because they had benefited a great deal.
