Introduction

 The Conference on IP Statistics for Decision Makers has been annually held since 2003 in various countries under the cooperation of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), for the purpose that government officials and academic experts in each field gather together to exchange information and have discussions on intellectual property and economy as well as intellectual property and statistics. This year marked the 12th Conference.
 Japan Patent Office hosted the Conference for the first time this year, which was a part of 50th anniversary events for Japan to become a member of the OECD. A keynote speech was delivered by Executive Director of Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), and panel discussions and academic research presentations were made by government high-rank officials from Five IP Offices (IP5) and experts from various countries, focusing on the role of intellectual property in economic development along with IP statistical information to confirm such role.
 One-day PATSTAT Workshop was also held after the main conference mainly to introduce how to utilize the EPO Worldwide Patent Statistical Database (PATSTAT). As is implied in the name, “PATSTAT” is a database consisting of information on over 60 million patent applications provided by more than 100 countries, and is currently available through the EPO.
