BEIJING, July 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Wu Yi expressed the hope that China wishes to improve the cooperation with other countries and learn from their advanced experience to promote the protection of IPR (intellectual property right) on the Internet.
Wu made the remark in a letter congratulating the opening of the 2007 International Copyright Forum opened here on Wednesday.
The Chinese government has always paid great attention to the IPR protection work and has achieved great progress in recent years, Wu said in the letter.
"Better IPR protection will not only enhance China's international competitiveness as well as economic and technological power, but also help create a sound environment for China's opening up and international exchanges," Wu said.
The 2007 International Copyright Forum is the second one co-organized by China's National Copyright Administration and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). More than 200 representatives from China, United States, European Union and Japan attend the forum.
