Indonesia, EU tackle IP in trade talks

During the 17th Round of Negotiations of the Indonesia-European Union Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IEU-CEPA) Working Group on Intellectual Property (WGIP), Indonesia’s Ministry of Law and Human Rights tackled the issues surrounding the intellectual property system.

According to Marchienda Werdany, head of foreign cooperation at the ministry’s Directorate General of Intellectual Property, the goal of the discussion was to guarantee the EU and Indonesia’s IP protection systems. Werdany emphasized the significance of providing economic players with legal certainty, as reported by ANTARA news agency.

In a statement, she said: “There are still two rounds of negotiations. The Ministry of Trade is targeting that by July 2024, they would have been completed and continued by signing by leaders of each country.”

Werdany stated that the forum’s main focus was on several EU proposals, including those on genetic resources and traditional knowledge, the length of the industrial design protection period and the protection of data related to pharmaceutical products. Read more
