Diplomatic Community in Geneva to Explore Challenges Faced By the Creative Industries in Developing Countries

On October 19th, the U.S. Chamber will support a roundtable discussion in Geneva, Switzerland on the challenges faced by the music, film and print industries, particularly in developing countries, in protecting their creations. The program, which is aimed at the diplomatic community in Geneva, will include speakers from a number of countries, including Argentina, India and South Africa. The event will be hosted by the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Geneva and several other country missions (details to be confirmed).  
This program will be the third in a series of roundtables in Geneva sponsored this year by the Chamber, as a member of the Coalition for Innovation, Employment and Development (CIED). The goal of these programs is to further CIED’s mission to highlight the importance of innovation, creativity and strong intellectual property rights in delivering real solutions to global challenges. Earlier programs focused on the innovative life cycle and on protecting consumers and patients from fake goods and medicines.
