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

March 8, 2017

From March 6 to 8, 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 cooperation of the Japan Patent Office (JPO), the JPO conducted the JICA Counterpart Training Course, targeting for members of the Patent Appeal Board involved in trial and appeal operations in the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DGIP) of Indonesia.

In this training course, the members of the Patent Appeal Board learned about the patent trial and appeal system in Japan and ways for utilizing the trial and appeal system from the perspective of users. They also had an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the difference between the systems of the two countries through the active exchange of opinions.

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