The China National Intellectual Property Administration aims to shorten the examination period for invention patent applications to 16.5 months, and 13.8 months for a high-quality invention patent application. Average trademark registration time will remain at four months. Efforts will also be made to better align administration and justice systems related to intellectual property protections, and to protect IP rights related to the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
