The United States will continue to pressure China on strengthening its intellectual property rights (IPR) protection and adjusting some industrial policies during the bilateral talks, U.S. Trade representative Ronald Kirk said on Tuesday in Washington DC.

Washington's next step is to pressure Beijing on its IPR regime and better its industrial sector policies on areas like indigenous innovation, Kirk said in a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Experts say the appeal reflects the significant pressure on Obama to fulfill his commitment to enhance U.S. exports, but that simply blaming China's IPR regime is not the solution.

"Obama promised to double U.S. exports within five years in his State of Union address delivered early this year, which is the reason that the U.S. is now attaching importance to China's IPR protection," Niu Xinchun, an expert on U.S. studies at the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations said.

"However, they may have missed the real problem, " said Jiang Zhipei, vice-president of the IPR association of the China Law Society.
