The meeting participants included Andrei Iancu, Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office; Benoir Battistelli, President of the European Patent Office; Naoko Munakata, Commissioner of the Japan Patent Office, and Shen Changyu, Commissioner of State Intellectual Property Office of P.
