About the Event

The High Commission of Canada and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore are pleased to invite you to a presentation 

                                                             The Evolution of China’s IP System

 

With the growing need for China’s intellectual property system to evolve at a very fast pace, various policies have continued to promote the reduction of China’s dependence on technological imports. These policies include patent and R&D subsidies, competition policy, FDI restrictions and university-firm R&D collaboration. Dr. Malkin will outline how China's evolving IP protection and commercialization ecosystem have contributed to the rise of China as a high-tech superpower, the challenges that remain, and the implications for Canada as a medium-sized, open economy; and, ultimately, for Canadian firms doing business in China and the region.

                                                                          Complimentary Event 

Anton’s research focuses on the relationship between foreign investment and economic development in China. His past work examined the role of foreign banks in China’s financial markets and state-owned enterprise restructuring process, and China’s technology transfer policies. His research into foreign investment in China has more recently shifted to examine the growing importance of intellectual property protection and commercialization in China, and China’s growing presence in global intangible markets. Anton speaks and reads Chinese and Russian. 

Anton’s most recent achievement is his publication Made in China 2025 as a Challenge in Global Trade Governance: Analysis and Recommendations. The paper has been presented in numerous conferences and has been used to brief Global Affairs Canada on Canada-China trade issues. Anton will be an advisor on foreign direct investment intellectual property issues in GTAsia’s assessment of Canada-China Cleantech Outcomes.

 

Anton is a research fellow at the Center for International Governance Innovation. From 2012-2013 he was a Senior Visiting Scholar in the School of International Studies at Peking University. He holds a PhD Global Governance from the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
