Hunan Province is one of China’s five pilots on building itself into a powerful province in intellectual property (IP). It has developed several world-class techniques, such as super computer; super hybrid rice; super-speed train; world’s tallest concrete pump; world-class crawler crane; and “Sea Bull” submersible deep-sea drill. The high-speed railway power system and the medium-low speed maglev train reached world-leading technical level.


Hunan and Hong Kong have maintained sound sci-tech cooperation, and reached remarkable results.


The Hunan Department of Science and Technology inked an agreement of cooperation intention with the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI). The two sides aimed to establish an IP personnel training, protection, and management collaboration mechanism, based on the Business of IP Asia Forum in Hong Kong, and the Pan-Pearl River Delta platform.
