The capital's first guidance office for geographical indication trademarks and brands was founded recently in Fengtai district. It will help to strengthen management and application of geographical indication and agricultural trademarks and brands, and promote development of sectors such as flowers and plants, fruits and cultural creativity. The office also plans to establish a geographical indication trademark expert committee to support farmers, agricultural companies and related cooperatives. It will launch monitoring and early warning for such trademarks to prevent trademark squatting and provide tailor-made measures against infringements.
