The object of this paper study the impact of CPTPP intellectual property rights on China’s foreign trade economy, thereby to explore how to formulate a competition policy that combines China’s national conditions. In this study, the TPP intellectual property clauses and CPTPP intellectual property clauses was summarized and analyzed using analytical methods such as induction, dialectic, comparison, and history analysis. Firstly, a comprehensive understanding of the CPTPP intellectual property clauses was made from the aspects of geographical indicators and trademarks, patents and experimental data, copyright and related rights, and enforcement measures; and then, based on the CPTPP intellectual property clauses, the status quo of property rights and China’s current deficiencies in intellectual property were analyzed. Finally, it discussed the impact of CPTPP intellectual property clauses on China’s foreign trade economy and how to gain a leading edge in future international economic and trade exchanges. The results showed that CPTPP’s new intellectual property regulations have both positive and negative impacts on China’s foreign trade economy and intellectual property rights. The main negative impact is that in the short term, China’s exported goods or commodities to the outside world can easily infringe the intellectual property rights and economic benefits of other countries, especially the 11 countries that signed the CPTPP agreement. The positive impact is that China can refer to the CPTPP intellectual property clauses when revising laws on intellectual property rights. After all, the CPTPP intellectual property clauses represent the highest protection for patents, copyrights and trademarks in developed countries. This paper analyzed and improved the efficiency of China’s foreign trade system and economic exchanges, and found that the CPTPP intellectual property clause has a great impact on China’s foreign economic relations and trade, which provides a strong basis for the future enactment of intellectual property regulations in China.
