State Administration Council Member Deputy Prime Minister Union Minister for Defence General Mya Tun Oo, in his capacity as Chairman of the Central Committee for Intellectual Property Rights, attended the Grand Opening Ceremony of Trademark Registration and World Intellectual Property Day 2023 held in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
At the event, the Deputy Prime Minister Union Minister for Defence said Myanmar is a member of the World Trade Organization-WTO and World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and it needs to establish an international intellectual property rights system for the country. The government enacted four major IP Laws in 2019 and the Trademark Law came into effect on 1 April 2023. The trademark registration processes will begin on 26 April 2023 and so that day is a historic and significant day for the country.
The WIPO member countries celebrate World IP Day respectively and the theme of this year is “Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity”.
As the country carries out the trademark registration and protects the trademarks as per the law, it will benefit investment and trading, fully protect the owner of brands and eligible people, and curb the imitation of products and fake products in the market to ensure the competitive market system and create a safe community for the public.
Then, the vice-chair of the committee and Union minister for Commerce made a remark and the video message of the director-general of WIPO was played.
Then, the Deputy Prime Minister pressed the electric button to launch the trademark registration system.
After the ceremony, he also observed the demonstration of trademark registration processes, documentary photos for the development of the IP system, works of winners of poems, posters, cartoons and articles competitions marking 2023 World IP Day and regional development programmes of the Intellectual Property Department, four major IP Laws and counterfeit-real goods.
The event also included a talk show under the theme of 2023 World IP Day by one female director-general of the IP Department and three female directors-general of the departments concerned while the deputy director-general of the IP Department and business people discussed the matters related to the trademark rights.
The business people can make trademark registration starting 26 April at the IP Department Nay Pyi Taw (head), Lower Myanmar (Yangon branch) and Upper Myanmar (Mandalay branch) in person or via the representatives online. — MNA/KTZH
