On December 8th, a video message from Mr. Kasutani, Commissioner of the Japan Patent Office (JPO), in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Institute of Industrial Property of Brazil (INPI) was uploaded on the official social media of the INPI(External link).

In the message, Commissioner Kasutani offered his heartiest congratulations on the 50th anniversary of the INPI and highly praised INPI’s initiatives that have contributed significantly to the development of global intellectual property (IP) systems. Also, he mentioned the cooperative initiatives being conducted between the JPO and the INPI in the field of IP, such as the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) program and human resources development. Further, he indicated that the JPO and the INPI would closely work together to establish an IP system that can contribute to economic growth.

Going forward, the JPO will actively promote cooperation with the INPI on IP system establishment. Based on this, the JPO is committed to developing a framework, in which IP rights can be acquired promptly and smoothly and be more adequately protected.
