Manila hosting two global IP conferences
The Philippines is hosting two global intellectual property conferences that will tackle the significance and impact of intellectual property rights protection on the growth and development of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
The International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property will hold the 2nd AIPPI Asean Regional Meeting in cooperation with the Intellectual Property Association of the Philippines on April 20, 2017. Among the topics to be discussed are the emerging IP issues in the digital age and IP-related issues on the use of “clean and green” technologies.
Meanwhile, the Philippine Group of the Asean Intellectual Property Association will host the 2017 Asean-IPA Annual Conference and General Membership Meeting on April 21 to 23. Both conferences will be held at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria Hotel in Ortigas Center, Quezon City.
“The theme of this year’s conference is ‘IP in the Asean Region in a Changing Global Landscape.’ The theme complements the overall theme of the Asean’s 50th Founding Anniversary: Partnering For Change, Engaging The World. We expect to harness the collaboration of all the Asean countries in proactively promoting intellectual property rights protection to accelerate the growth and development of business in Asean,” said Asean IPA incoming president Aleli Angela Quirino, AccraLaw Of-Counsel.
