Information session on Hague for Suriname

On 2 December 2022, the CARIFORUM Intellectual Property Rights and Innovation (CarIPI) project and the Bureau of Intellectual Property of Suriname organised a joint information session on the Hague system1 to protect national and international designs.

During the session, CarIPI’s legal expert Ms Diana Versteeg delivered a presentation on the benefits of this treaty for Surinamese businesses wishing to protect their designs internationally.

Stakeholders and authorities from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Entrepreneurship and Technological Innovation in Suriname attended the event, with the aim of strengthening intellectual property in CARIFORUM and promote investments, competitiveness and creativity in the private sector.

The event announced the release of a new guide to provide designers and entrepreneurs in Suriname with a clear understanding of the Hague system and its exponential benefits. The guide will be published soon.

This information session is part of activity 12 of CarIPI’s fourth Annual Work Plan, International IP Treaties: promotion, training, legal gap studies and publications.
