WIPO Singapore Office
With growing economies, significant intellectual property (IP) creators and attractive markets, the global IP system is critically important to the ASEAN Region. The WIPO Office in Singapore seeks to increase innovation and creativity in the ASEAN region by promoting effective use of IP services such as the PCT, Madrid and Hague.
The Office helps member states to improve understanding and respect for IP, as well as working together to increase awareness of IP, improve their IP systems, streamline processes and develop their staff.
An important role for the Office is to assist in the implementation of the ASEAN Working Group on IP Cooperation’s IP Rights Action Plan 2011-2015.
