Intellectual Property rights protection is beneficial to the governments of both Viet Nam and the US, stressed an official from the US Embassy in Viet Nam at an international conference on Intellectual Property rights opened in Ha Noi on Nov. 20.
The conference, which brought together government and industries, would make significant contribution to fostering dialogues, as well as supplying critical information and raising awareness of representatives of both industries and government, noted Deputy Chief of Mission of the US Embassy Jonathan Aloisi.
The US official spoke highly of Viet Nam’s efforts in intensifying the Intellectual Property rights protection through legislation and information dissemination. However, he said, all sides recognised that much more must be done.
The US was willing to help Viet Nam succeed in this effort, he added.
The workshop was co-hosted by the Viet Nam Intellectual Property Association (VIPA) and the Viet Nam Intellectual Property Institute (VIPI).-Enditem
