WTO Public Forum Panel and Reception in Geneva, Switzerland

WTO Public Forum Panel and Reception in Geneva, Switzerland

The GIPC will be organizing a panel at the WTO 2011 Public Forum on Lessons Learned from Regional and Bilateral FTAs – Assessing Economic Impacts and Whether Stronger Rules Stimulate Innovation in Geneva, Switzerland. We look forward to engaging in productive dialogues in examining case studies of IP protections in global trade agreements. Panelists from developed and developing country governments and from the private sector will provide their perspectives on how increased intellectual property has affected the flow of new products and ideas in the global marketplace.
