GENEVA (VNS)— A Vietnamese delegation led by the Director General of Viet Nam's National Office of Intellectual Property, Ta Quang Minh, attended the 51st session of the General Assembly of Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) in Geneva.

The Geneva-based organisation provides annual assistance to Viet Nam through programmes on distance learning and database access, in an effort to raise Viet Nam's intellectual property framework.

The meetings took place from September 23 to October 2 and drew delegations from 186 WIPO member countries.

The Vietnamese delegation also met with bilateral partners to promote co-operation, and held meetings with WIPO and the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market - the EU's trademark agency - and representatives from other countries in the ASEAN community. — VNS
