China seeks to strengthen its cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organization and other countries to achieve deeper participation in global intellectual property governance, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Thursday. 

China hopes to jointly promote the development of the global intellectual property governance system to develop in a more just and reasonable direction, Hua told a press briefing in Beijing.

Hua noted that China's intellectual property protection work has made historic achievements after years of hard work.  

In the first 10 months of this year, China’s patent applications amounted to 1.232 million, an increase of 11.2 percent year-on-year. 

The number of international patent applications received under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) increased by 23.5 percent year-on-year to 55,000, even amid the impact of the epidemic. 

In the past five years, China has risen to 14th place among 131 economies in the world in terms of innovation capability.

Technological innovation is becoming the first driving force leading China's development as it is treated with increasing importance in China's development strategy.
