JPO Joined Casablanca IP Week in Morocco

May 19, 2016

From May 13 to 18, the Casablanca IP Week was celebrated in Casablanca, the Kingdom of Morocco as the 100th anniversary of the Morocco’s IP system. Mr. Shimano, Director-General of the Trial and Appeal Department of the JPO, joined the panel discussion under the theme of “National industrial property strategies: New challenges and contributions to economic development” as one of the panelists. Mr. Shimano introduced IP strategies of Japan, and made a strong appeal, to Ministers among audience, to the effect that if they want to see further development and economic growth in Africa, it is very important for the heads of the government of countries in Africa to demonstrate leadership and take initiative in establishing and improving the IP system in their own countries.
