Nov 09, 2018 (China Knowledge) - China has announced the preliminary approval of 16 trademarks for Ivanka Trump defunct businesses dealing with fashion accessories among others. Ivana Marie "Ivanka" Trump is White House adviser and daughter of U.S. President Donald Trump.

The approvals were applied earlier in March and May last year, before her announcement of shutting down of business this year. Trademark applications’ preliminary approvals are usually finalized after a three-month period of public commencement. 

Trademarks applied by Ivanka cover a wide variety of goods ranging from fashion items to gadgets and electronics ranging from cameras to telephones.

President Donald Trump was previously sued by a non-profit organization, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, in Washington for his business interests after assuming Presidential office.

Trump has promised to label China as a currency manipulator and to establish tariffs to discourage companies from laying off workers that are looking to relocate operations overseas to reduce taxes and costs of goods produced.

The move to approved trademarks filed by Ivanka can be seen as a move by the Chinese government to dismiss conversations regarding China’s lacks of interests in intellectual property protection. It also highlights the effort the authorities have took to follow law in reviewing all applications filed. 

It currently has more than 1,000 AI experts, 5 AI research institutions and more than 10 world-class joint research institutions. According to deputy CEO, Chen Xinying, Ping An Cloud is also the largest and most widely used financial cloud platform in China.
