At a congressional budget planning committee meeting on the 13th, Minister of Economic Affairs Edano strongly criticized China over applications in that country to use Japanese agricultural produce and location names as trademarks, saying, “It’s a very grave state of affairs. If this kind of thing is done with impunity, isn’t it a problem for national pride? I want to ask them, ‘Don’t you have any pride?'”

Minister Noda announced that Japan is working with the Chinese government to improve its trademark registration system, saying that “While it’s only been a little bit, there has been a change of posture [on the Chinese side], so we want to follow up on that and request strict application of the law.”
