KOREA-ASEAN Heads of IP Offices Meeting
KOREA-ASEAN Heads of IP Offices Meeting will take place in Seoul, Korea on the special occasion of the ASEAN-ROK Commemorative Summit, bringing together the leaders of national intellectual property offices of all ASEAN member states as well as the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO). This meaningful meeting pursues co-prosperity driven by intellectual property, which is in alignment with the underlying ideas of people-centeredness and co-prosperity advocated by the ASEAN-ROK Commemorative Summit.
Under the slogan of Innovation for Prosperity, Prosperity for People
The launch of KOREA-ASEAN Heads of IP Offices Meeting is based on the Memorandum of Cooperation between KIPO and the Intellectual Property Offices of the ASEAN Member States for Comprehensive Cooperation in the field of Intellectual Property, which was signed in March 2018 at the first KOREA-ASEAN Heads of IP Offices Meeting. The fundamental purpose stated in the Memorandum is to enhance bilateral exchange and cooperation in the area of intellectual property so as to promote the development of IP system of respective countries and thereby to contribute to the economic growth of ASEAN member states and Korea.
This year’s Heads of IP Offices Meeting is expected to present a further developed vision for stronger and more constructive cooperation between Korea and ASEAN member states.
The emblem of KOREA-ASEAN Heads of IP Offices Meeting is an
imagery of the letter "IP (Intellectual Property)" whose shape symbolizes the concept "people" which is one of the 3P
strategies advocated by the ASEAN-ROK Commemorative Summit.
The color change in the emblem that naturally goes from red to blue represents diversity of Korea and ASEAN.
