Hanoi (VNA) – Up to 1,000 individuals from institutes, universities and enterprises will be trained on intellectual property from 2016-2020 under a programme which has just been approved by the Prime Minister.

The programme aims to raise the awareness of intellectual property rights among units and individuals in the context of the country’s intensive international integration.

Under the programme, intellectual property rights will be reserved, managed and developed for 70 signature products of trade villages across the nation.

At least 100 enterprises and science-technology organisations will be assisted to build and implement an intellectual property rights management and development model and approved national brands will be helped to register intellectual property rights at home and abroad, among others.

To that end, a database will be developed to facilitate the access of units and individuals to information on intellectual property rights.

Numerous other activities will also be organised to promote and enhance the value and the competitiveness of Vietnam’s intellectual properties at home and abroad.-VNA
