Development agenda on IPRS gets a big boost

Feb '07
The proposal to establish a Development Agenda on Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) received a major boost, with the first-ever International Meeting on Intellectual Property and development Issues Related to the Development Agenda concluding its deliberations here.

The 3-day (5-7 February 2007) meeting, inaugurated by Dr. Ajay Dua, Secretary (DIPP), was organised by the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP), in association with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & industry (FICCI) and National Intellectual Property Organisation (NIPO). The proposal to establish a Development Agenda contains 111 proposals made by member countries of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO).

A broad consensus was reached on a number of proposals which have special significant for developing countries. Some of these important proposals are:

• Proposal to strengthen WIPO's technical cooperation programme, taking into account the different levels of development of member states in designing, delivering and evaluating technical assistance.

• To create a WIPO Partnership Programme Database, an internet-based tool to facilitate the strategic use of intellectual property by developing countries by bringing together all stakeholders to match specific IPR-related development needs with available resources, thereby amplifying the impact of intellectual property development assistance.

• To devise innovative ways and means, including the fostering of transfer of technology, to enable SMEs take better advantage of flexibilities as provided by relevant international agreements and to explore policies, initiatives and reforms necessary to ensure the transfer and dissemination of technology to the benefit of developing countries.
