JICA Counterpart Training for Indonesia:
Study Visit Training for Trademark Appeal Board Members

September 29, 2016

From September 26 to 29, as part of the “Project on Intellectual Property Rights Protection and Legal Consistency for Improving Business Environment in Indonesia*” run by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) with the cooperation of the Japan Patent Office (JPO), the JPO conducted the JICA Counterpart Training Course for the Trademark Appeal Board, targeting for members of the Trademark Appeal Board of the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DGIP) of Indonesia.

In this training course, the group of members studied the trademark trial and appeal system as well as judicial precedent on trademark in Japan. Also, they learned ways for utilizing the trial and appeal system from a perspective of users. These were done for the members to refer to them when considering how to improve their trademark trial and appeal system and how to enhance its function. In addition, they had an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the difference between the systems of both countries through the active exchange of opinions.

The JPO will continue to strengthen its IP-related cooperation with the DGIP of Indonesia.
