On-Demand support related to FTA negotiations and IP Dialogues
As the IP Key SEA Action is designed to facilitate FTA negotiations and IP Dialogues, the project will provide technical expertise and assistance geared towards strengthening knowledge-based policy making in SEA countries through the conduct of IP studies and other forms of assistance as needed. This activity will cover initiatives identified with FTA partner countries in SEA, such as reports, studies, seminars, or meetings, among others, which should be useful in ensuring positive results in the negotiations and dialogues.
In 2022, the EU-Thailand IPR Dialogue was organised on 5 October in Brussels, Belgium. The IP Key SEA project organised side events on 6- 7 October, which included a visit to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the EUIPO and the Department of Intellectual Property (DIP) of Thailand, and a study visit to the fields of Elche, a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) where the Mollar de Elche pomegranate is produced.
