Vietnam holds the Conference on Intellectual Property in 2023

On March 9, 2023, the National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam organized the Intellectual Property Conference 2023 to summarize and evaluate the state management of intellectual property in 2022, preparing major orientations for IP activities in Vietnam in 2023.

Attending the conference were Mr. Huynh Thanh Dat, member of the Central Committee of the Party, Minister of Science and Technology, leaders of the People’s Committee of Thua Thien Hue province, the Department of Intellectual Property, the Department of Science and Technology of Thua Thien Hue province, the departments and branches of Thua Thien Hue province, representatives of a number of universities, research institutes, industrial property representative organizations from 62 Departments of Science and Technology across the country of Vietnam.

In order to take advantage of intellectual property as a driving force for the development of Vietnam’s socio-economic development, the Prime Minister issued the IP Strategy to 2030 with a focus on integrating IP in the fields of economic and social sector.

However, in the stage of implementing the set goals, relevant ministries, branches and agencies of Vietnam have encountered many difficulties and obstacles. A few knots have been removed with the promulgation of the amended Law on Intellectual Property of Vietnam 2022, effective from January 1, 2023, in which the regulation on sound trademark registration is the highlight element, showing the focus on implementing Vietnam’s commitments in international agreements.

However, Vietnam’s intellectual property industry in general still has many bottlenecks that need to be further removed, for example, some provisions in the revised Intellectual Property Law 2022 are still relatively complicated, needing competent authority to issue implementation guidelines.
