To this end, a number of recent initiatives have been undertaken by the Organisation in Singapore, as well as outside the island’s borders. With the presence of Mr. Daren Tang, participants to this special event will be offered an overview of recent initiatives implemented by IPOS. Topics of interests will range from international negotiations on IP regulations to fostering innovation in the region.
