Society’s Mission

Asia Innovation and Intellectual Property Society is committed to build a practical and efficient platform for communication and cooperation so as to gather Asian professional organizations and experts in the field of intellectual property and to fully utilize their professional advantages and experiences, in order to promote intellectual property services and development in line with modern economic demand; to explore today’s practical difficulties in the practice of intellectual property; and to boost innovation and economic development. Our Society actively works with governments, research institutes and professionals in Hong Kong, China and other regions, in order to help entities specialized in technology innovation and creative design with enhancing intellectual property protection and operation levels; to strengthen exchange and cooperation between intellectual property related organizations and practitioners and to improve their service capability and standard. With the strategic opportunity of One Belt One Road Initiative, our ambition is to raise China’s competiveness in innovation and intellectual property; to promote Hong Kong as an Asian and international intellectual property trading hub; and to foster cooperation and development among intellectual property practitioners in Asia.
