Afghanistan: IPR Border Enforcement Program

February 12, 2018 - February 13, 2018

CLDP and USPTO will conduct a 2-day IPR border enforcement program for sixteen Afghan participants comprised of officials from the Afghanistan Customs Department, the Ministry of Commerce and Industries and the Afghan Judiciary. This program is part of a long term engagement with the Government of Afghanistan to help build capacity of ministries that are responsible for helping the government meet its obligations under the World Trade Organization’s Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS). The two day engagement will focus on identifying existing gaps between TRIPS obligations by reviewing current Afghan customs laws and procedures. The  Afghan officials in attendance will work towards creating a strategy document to rectify the identified gaps with assistance from the appropriate experts. CLDP and USPTO will also work with the participants on updating the Implementing Action Plan to meet the TRIPS commitments.
