Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

“[T]he PRC is using the WIPO bureaucratic procedures as an opportunity to enforce the One China principle within and beyond the WIPO environment,” said Courtney Fung, assistant professor of international relations at the University of Hong Kong and an associate fellow at London-based think tank Chatham House, referring to the People’s Republic of China, which was represented “China” at the UN and all its agencies since 1971. “This is part of a consistent PRC approach to restrict Taiwan’s international space by utilizing the rules and procedures of multilateral institutions.”
