Nine Chinese cities including Quanzhou of Fujian Province and Taizhou of Zhejiang Province have the honor to join “national team’, meaning they have become key cities to establish national IP operation and service system. The Ministry of Finance will earmark 150 to 200 million Yuan financial support for Quanzhou in the next three years, aiming at invigorating IP innovation.
