Shen Changyu introduced to the delegation China’s IPR policies and systems. He remarked that China enjoyed deep traditional friendship with Togo; particularly, the economic and trade cooperation as well as scientific and cultural exchanges between two countries became increasingly close in recent years, in which IPR played a significant supporting role. Chinese government always paid high attention to IPR, and made several important decisions and deployments in recent years, bringing broad prospects to Sino-Togo cooperation in the field of IPR. SIPO hoped to strengthen its communication and exchanges,enrich and improve its cooperation with INPIT. Mnanta Komi Lamatetou  remarked that the Republic of Togo was an old friend of China, and two countries maintained friendly cooperative relations in aspects of economy, science and technology, as well as culture. As a member state of African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI), Togo established sound cooperation relationship with China under the framework of OAPI. INPIT hoped to further deepen its cooperation with China under frameworks including OAPI, and share experiences with China on topics of common concern, so as to promote mutual development.
