Delegation of IPOS Visited JPO

May 29, 2018

On May 28, 2018, a delegation headed by Mr. Ng Kok Wan, the Assistant Chief Executive of the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS), visited the Japan Patent Office (JPO), and exchanged opinions with Mr. Kunihiko Shimano, the Deputy Commissioner, with regard to the cooperative relationship between the two offices.

The IPOS delegation held discussions with the patent examination department and design examination department of the JPO, on such topics as measures for speeding up the examination process and appropriate approaches to organizational management. Both parties agreed to enhance the mutual understanding and cooperative relationship between them.

The JPO will promote cooperative relationships with its counterparts in Singapore and other ASEAN countries and strive to develop intellectual property environments where intellectual property will be protected appropriately.
