As in 2012, recently an action plan of intellectual property has been drafted by an interdepartmental agency made by 28 Chinese government organizations. The plan is intended to give guidelines and tasks including intellectual property creation, management and promotion. The action plan includes 84 measures with much defined targets, in particular the review and assessment of the Outline of the National Intellectual Property Strategy and the strategies for the key industries of strategic importance. The tasks will be accomplished by a strong cooperation among the involved government departments. Both for trademarks and patents the attention will be put on quality rather than quantity to guarantee a wide innovation strategy.
