The Global Patent Academy (GPA) of the Japan Patent Office (JPO) provided a two-day online Train the Trainers Program for patent managers and trainers for the ASEAN IP Academy (ASEAN IPA) on 21-22 October 2021.

The ASEAN IPA is a virtual platform intended to provide customized IP training for the ASEAN Member States. This includes Train the Trainers Programs which are intended to build up the capabilities of IP officials and trainers in the region to conduct training internally and be equipped with the necessary skill sets to be a full fledge trainer.

This inaugural Train the Trainer Program gathered 23 patent managers and trainers from the ASEAN IP Offices for this online training. The topics discussed included Operations Management, Quality Management and Human Resource Development.

Mr Looi Teck Kheong, Head of Competition, Consumer Protection and IPR Division (CCPID) of the ASEAN Secretariat, in his opening remarks thanked the JPO for their commitment and support to the ASEAN region. He also said, "The JPO is one of our Dialogue Partners and has always been among the first to provide support for our IPR initiatives."

The JPO continues to provide trainings on the patent examination practices and management through its GPA to the ASEAN IPA and other countries.
