Central Asia: Intellectual Property Rights Working Group Meeting 

Intellectual Property Agency (Uzbekistan)

On July 14-15, CLDP virtually gathered over 35 government experts from Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan with U.S.-based interagency advisors. The meeting provided a unique platform for interactions among the Central Asian experts and set up a series of meetings to address and overcome deficiencies in intellectual property rights (IPR) protections in Central Asia, as noted in the U.S. Trade Representative’s Special 301 Report. Aligning IPR protections and enforcement in Central Asia with international best practices will promote innovation and economic diversification and will lead to increased trade and investment in the region.
