Topic: US-China IP disputes over key tech sectors and implication on foreign businesses

Speaker: Neville Lam, Partner, Kway Capital, Shanghai China

As an emerging powerhouse in technology, China’s practices in intellectual properties (IPs) has been a hot topic for audience in the US. In his talk, Neville Lam will present a macroscopic view of PRC’s technology development since its founding to recent era. He will revisit China’s adoption of the modern concept of IPs as a tool for technological development, its “national champions” with leading global IPs from sectors such as telecommunications, alternative energy, EV batteries and their disputes with US and other developed countries. Neville will also cross over to discuss China’s Nasdaq style STAR board and how it turbo-charges tech startups. He will conclude by exploring possible future scenarios on IP’s role in the country’s tech development and the role of foreign businesses in it.
