This joint EUIPO-OECD study provides a detailed analysis of economy- and industry-specific patterns in the misuse of containerised maritime transport by counterfeiters. It also looks at the sources of counterfeits being shipped in containers and the ports of entry into the European Union. In addition, the role of China’s Belt and Road Initiative and the Chinese investments into port infrastructure in the EU are examined.
The study is available in the publications page on the Observatory website.
The executive summary is also available in French.
