  On August 28, Zhang Mao, Director of the State Administration for Market Supervision, met with the visiting World Intellectual Property Organization(WIPO) Director General Francis Gurry and the team.   

  Zhang Mao introduced Gurry the basic situation of the State Administration for Market Supervision’s institutional reform, especially in the aspects such as assignment of responsibility between the State Administration for Market Supervision and the State Intellectual Property Office on the intellectual property verification, management, protection and law enforcement, responsibility for the State Administration for Market Supervision to fight with the unfair competition and the building of the comprehensive law enforcement team responsible for comprehensive market supervision and law enforcement. He said the reforms would further reduce government interference in the market, reduce regulatory costs and improve regulatory efficiency. Zhang Mao appreciated Gurry’s proposal that China and the United States should resolve their differences through multilateral means and maintain the multilateral trading system. In the face of the new international situation and downward pressure on the domestic economy, we have actively strengthened the endogenous driving force for economic development through deepening reform.    

  The State Administration for Market Supervision promotes the reform of the commercial system, improves the registration of enterprises and the registration of intellectual property rights, continuously optimizes the access environment, and promotes the sustained and active growth of market entities. In the first half of this year, the number of new businesses was up to 18,100 per day and new market players have grown substantially, which provides an important support for entrepreneurship, innovation and job creation, and has been an important driving force for China's economic transformation, upgrading and high-quality development.          

  Gurry expressed congratulations on the establishment of the State Administration for Market Supervision. He said that the State Administration for Market Supervision plays an important role in the development of the market economy. In the context of the digital economy, market supervision work such as intellectual property protection and competition enforcement faces many new challenges. The two sides have broad space for cooperation in many areas including combating counterfeiting, trade secret protection, competition law enforcement, etc., and he look forward to continuing to innovate forms of cooperation and have further cooperation with the State Administration for Market Supervision.
