China will expand international cooperation in enforcing intellectu

al property rights to facilitate trade and create a favorable business environment for ente

rprises from China and overseas, a customs official said on Wednesday.

Cooperative customs mechanisms have been establ

ished in more than 130 countries and regions, with more than 190 agree

ments signed, including with major trade partners such as the United States, the European Union, Russia, Japan

and South Korea, said Jin Hai, deputy director for general affairs at the General Administration of Customs.

To more effectively fight crossborder violations of intellectual property rights, Chinese cust

oms will improve information sharing and exchanges of data with other countries and regions.
