"Strong IP Drives The Bottom Line" Moves To China
By Peter Hess, President, LES International
Education is one of the main pillars of LESI's value propositions. Based on a first meeting between representatives of LES China and the LESI Educational Committee during the LESI International Conference in Paris in April 2017, a licensing seminar took place in Beijing from November 15 to November 17, 2017, at which I had the honor to give the opening speech. The unique feature of this event with more than 100 participants was that it was organized in cooperation with CIPO (the Chinese Intellectual Property Office), LES China, and the LES International Educational Committee.

meeting with AIPPI.
In the name of LES International, I would like to say, "A Cordial Thank You" to Mr. Zhao Meisheng, Deputy General Director of CIPO, Mr. Zhongqi Zhou, President of LES China, and Martin Schneider, Chair of the LESI Educational Committee, as well as to their respective teams which did the hard work to make this successful event happen. Let's hope that many subsequent events will follow in China, helping to make our LES family to grow in China even stronger in the future. This event also reflects the huge interest which Patent Offices worldwide have to cooperate with LES and its educational programs.
During my visit in Beijing, I had also the chance to meet with Mr. Hao Ma, President of AIPPI International. During this fruitful meeting, we had the chance to discuss potentially common projects of interest which may result in some closer future corporation cooperation between AIPPI and LES International. As in many fields, both organizations face common challenges. It was agreed to start a corresponding discussion between the Boards of AIPPI International and LES International.
With my very best wishes to all LES Members worldwide, I remain...
