YOU CAN QUOTE ME: “I think BIP Asia Forum is very important to show that countries pay more attention to intellectual property protection. BIP Asia Forum is a kind of showcase that Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland or even Asia as a whole is transforming from a manufacturing centre to innovation centre.”
