Abstract:

Intellectual property rights play an important role in any given economy. These rights constitute assets that mean very much for businesses. Indeed, protection of intellectual property has become central in the development of economies. Intellectual property plays such a role in China’s economy. Over the years, China has adopted an export-driven economic policy that will make intellectual property central part of this policy. The paper will examine how intellectual property plays role in the development of societies in different countries with special reference to China. Issues such as the Washington Consensus and One Belt One Road Initiative will be examined and how these interact with intellectual property in China.
