  China became the world's sixth largest applicant for international trademark registration this year, up one place from 2010, said Wang Binying, deputy director general of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) at the 4th China Trademark Festival held in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province on September 6.

  Wang said that the country is now among the world's most active applicants in terms of the number of applications. Numbers show that the WIPO received a total of 39,687 applications worldwide in 2010. Among them, 1,928 came from China, up 42 percent year-on-year, the second fastest increase worldwide after the Republic of Korea.
