Li Chenggang, the Secretary of the Treaty and Law Department under the Ministry of Commerce, said at a news conference that the Chinese government has repeatedly shown and proven their firm position, clear attitude and continuous action on the issue of intellectual property protection.

Li said it is a fact that the Chinese government has obtained obvious achievements in intellectual property protection with more than 30 years of continuous efforts. He added, "I want to tell my international friends that if you do not objectively evaluate these achievements, we both will not have confidence in ourselves."

Li said that China's Ministry of Commerce organized related authorities in Chinese intellectual property to visit the United States to promote and introduce Chinese intellectual property protection in October this year.

Before the visit, U.S. government officials suggested that China should not pay a visit because the American people consider China a country with very serious infringements of intellectual property in the United States and will not be welcomed.

"But we insisted to go and achieved an unexpected result by holding a cooperation forum in San Francisco and at the China-U.S. government industry roundtable meeting. There were no tomatoes thrown, instead we won applause," said Li.

After the event, the United States sent a formal invitation to China to attend activities in Washington, D.C. next year. This shows that China can continue to enhance mutual understanding, solve conflicts and create a win-win situation only by deepening exchanges and cooperation.
