FY 2016 Follow up Seminar in Thailand

On October 26 and 27, 2016, a follow-up seminar was held in Bangkok, Thailand. The seminarwas organized by the Japan Patent Office (JPO) and Department of Intellectual Property,Thailand (DIP), conducted by Asia-Pacific Industrial Property Center of Japan Institute forPromoting Invention and Innovation (APIC-JIPII) and Intellectual Property Promotion Association of Thailand (IPPAT). This was the thirteenth seminar to be held in Thailand since 2000.

The seminar was attended by 217 people during two days. The attendees were mainly DIP employees and people from universities, research institutes, and law firms, but they also included people from private-sector companies and IP alumni from Thailand.

The theme of the seminar was “Role of Human Resource Development for Intellectual Property Sectors,” and began with opening remarks from Mrs. Auramon Supthaweethum, Deputy Director General of DIP, Mr. Kazuyuki Miura, Director of the International Cooperation Division, JPO and Mr. Chayatawatch Atibaedya, President of IPPAT on the first day.

After that, Mrs. Auramon Supthaweethum gave the keynote speech, which was entitled “Current Status of Intellectual Property Policy in Thailand.” This was followed by another keynote speech by Mr. Kazuyuki Miura, the title of which was “Current Situation of Industrial Property Policy in Japan,” and by special speech by Mr. Motoki Takada, Director of Intellectual Property, JETRO Bangkok, the title of which was “International Cooperation on IP with Thailand and ASEAN countries.”

After that, IP experts both in Japan and Thailand delivered lectures on four topics over two days: “Development of IP Human Resource in Public Sectors” and “Development of IP Human Resource in Private Sectors” on the first day, and “Development of IP Human Resource in R&D Sectors” and “Development of IP Human Resource in IP Law Enforcement” on the second day.

The delegates from Japan also delivered lectures: Mr. Minoru Torii, Dean & Senior Managing Director for Human Resources Development and Utilization, National Center for Industrial Property Information and Training (INPIT), under the title of “Development and Role of IP Human Resources in Japanese Government;” Mr. Takao Ogiya, Director General of APICJIPII, “Role and Development of IP Human Resources in Japanese Private Company”; Mr. Kenichi Hatori, Project Professor, Graduate School of Science and Technology, Keio University,“Development and Role of IP Human Resources in Japan’s University and Research Institute”; and Mr. Chikashi Tamura, Patent Attorney, and Director General of Training Institute of Japan Patent Attorney Association (JPAA), “Development and Role of IP Human Resources in Legal Service and Enforcement Sectors.”

In response to these lectures, the following delegates from Thailand delivered lectures: Dr.Kommate Chitwanichphiboon, Innovation System Director, National Science Technology and Innovation Policy Office (STI), Mr. Yingyong Tanthanapongphan, Intellectual Property Manager, Corporate Technology Office, The Siam Cement Public Company Limited, Prof. Dr.Sansanee Chairoj, Vice Rector, Mahidol University, and Mr. Nandana Indananda, Partner, Tilleke & Gibbins. Participants listened intently to each lecture and asked the lecturers many questions. This demonstrated a high level of awareness in intellectual property.

This seminar was held in mourning period of King Bhumibol of Thailand. There are many events for mourning their King. The Ministry of Commerce of Thailand also organized an event, “Royal Creativity for All,” as one of mourning events for King Bhumibol who made some invention as an inventor from October 28 to November 6. We would like to send our deep condolences to all the Thai people and would express our sincere gratitude that they gave opportunity to hold the seminar this time despite of their deep sorrow.

The DIP has entrusted to train new hired examiner at the DIP to the JPO this October. The DIP is focusing on human resource development not only for the personnel of the DIP but also IP related people in their respective country. We, APIC, would like to continue to support their capacity building under the direction of the JPO.
