Also, JPO Commissioner Ito paid a visit to the Department of Intellectual Property (DIP), Ministry of Commerce of Thailand, and exchanged opinions with Ms. Nuntawan Sakuntanaga, Director General of the DIP regarding the future direction of bilateral cooperation between the JPO and the DIP Thailand. At the meeting, the JPO was informed by Director General that the DIP Thailand received approval from the Cabinet to hire 120 new employers (30 patent examiners will be hired in the first year). The JPO will continue to cooperate for the DIP Thailand on contributing to their training of new patent examiners, aiming toward further reduction of patent backlog in the DIP Thailand.

The JPO will be continuously active in promoting international cooperation toward realizing global harmonization of intellectual property rights in collaboration with overseas IP offices, taking into account opinions of users around the world.
