South China's Guangdong Province has topped the country in the number of valid invention patents over the past eight years, according to local authorities.

By the end of 2017, the number of valid invention patents in the province reached 208,500, said He Jufeng, deputy director of the Guangdong Intellectual Property Office.

He said companies in the province were leading contributors to the rising number of invention patents.
