Ferrante M., Food for thought: the EU–China Agreement on GIs, Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice, Volume 16, Issue 4-5, April-May 2021, Pages 295–297

Agreement between the European Union and the Government of the People’s Republic of China on cooperation on, and protection of, geographical indications (signed on 14 September 2020). The recently signed EU-China Agreement for the protection of Geographical Indications (GIs) will provide a framework and increase the knowledge of the respective systems of GIs protection. However, for EU GIs owners, it will not replace registration and enforcement under Chinese law.
