JPO Conducted Training Course on Patent Examination Practices for Thailand

October 19, 2017

Under the aim of strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights in order to support developing countries with the development of human resources who engage in the industrial property rights system, the Japan Patent Office (JPO) has been inviting trainees from developing and emerging countries of the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, and Africa, and conducting training programs for them in Japan.

From October 13 to 19, the JPO conducted the Training Course on Patent Examination Practices for Thailand for 10 new patent examiners from Thailand. The JPO conducted this training course as a follow-up to the training course for new patent examiners that had been provided in Thailand by patent examiners sent from the JPO in March. In this training course, the trainees deepened their knowledge in terms of "user-friendly patent examination" through visit to examination office, practical exercises, lectures by representatives and applicants, etc.

The JPO has high expectations that the trainees will play important and active roles in their countries.
