In February 2018, United Nations Development Programme in China (UNDP China) and Kangxin’s legal department signed an agreement establishing Kangxin as UNDP’s legal counsel. Drawing on extensive industry experience and professionalism, Kangxin will support UNDP China by reviewing legal documents, providing legal advice, and protecting its rights and interests from infringement.

In China, UNDP mainly focuses on the following four areas: i. poverty and inequality alleviation, good governance; ii. Energy and environment iii. Disaster management, iv.

In today's era of rapid economic development, intellectual property rights are of great significance to the development of individuals, enterprises, organizations and even countries. Only by paying attention to the protection of intellectual property rights can we better protect our intellectual property rights from infringement and can encourage innovation, prevent theft of research and development, and protect legitimate rights and interests from infringement, thus making us invincible in a complex economic environment.
The selection of Kangxin's legal services by UNDP China is based on our professional and innovative skills in the field of intellectual property. As a professional intellectual property legal service organization, Kangxin also hopes to utilize its professional resources accumulated in the industry to better assist UNDP China in their contributing to the sustainable development of human beings, to help countries improve their adaptability and help improve people’s lives..
