IPRs can be an important stimulus to international business, innovation and economic growth if structured correctly and introduced in an environment of active competition.

Overall, the new legal regime seems meet the international standard, but there are some discrepancies that raise questions about policy, and difficulties in enforcement, whether it sensible for China’s position.
