Today, AAA IPRIGHT joined seminar on ASEAN Economic Community which held by National University of Singapore (NUS). This seminar is for Government Officials and legal practitioners. One highlighted content of the seminar is on ASEAN IP policies.
ASEAN IP Policies are overseen by the ASEAN Working Group on Intellectual Property Cooperation (AWGIPC). Objective is to transform ASEAN into innovative and competitive region through the use of IP for their national s and ensuring that the region remains an active player in the international IP community.
The AEC blueprint 2025 recognises that implementation of IPR activities is critical in increasing the role of ASEAN technology in economic development, promoting transfer of technology, and stimulating innovation and creativities.
For the period from 2016-2025, intellectual property rights (IPR) will play a greater role in supporting the regional development, and in improving the competitiveness of ASEAN. Therefore, IP Offices in all ASEAN countries need to achieve technical and procedural convergence and adopt modern business models and practices to be able to provide quality services to the relevant stakeholders.
