BEIJING, April 28 -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang met with World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Director General Daren Tang on Friday in Beijing.

China stands ready to deepen high-level practical cooperation with the WIPO, promote the establishment of universally beneficial, inclusive, balanced and effective international IPR rules, safeguard the legitimate right of all countries to development, and make the fruits of scientific and technological innovation accessible, shared and used by more countries and peoples, Qin said.

Tang commended the historic achievements China has made in intellectual property. The WIPO is ready to work with China to promote the sustained and healthy development of global IPR governance, he said.
