13 - 14 December 2018, Bangkok, Thailand
As an initiative of Thai Customs, the Workshop on Trade Facilitation Agreement and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) was held on 10 -14 December 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand, and Ms. Saori Nojima, Program Manager of the ROCB A/P, participated in the IPR-related sessions on 13 -14 December 2018 as a resource speaker. More than 20 officials of Customs administrations of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand (CLMVT) participated in the workshop and intensively discussed their border enforcement challenges and procedural regulations reviews regarding the IPR border enforcement.
The WCO has conducted a series of regional and national workshops regarding the IPR border enforcement for the WCO A/P Members, including the CLMVT (please see: ). This workshop provided them with an opportune occasion to optimize the synergy between the WCO capacity building assistance activities and the Thai Customs’ leadership in promoting regionally concerted IPR border enforcement. To this end, Ms. Nojima delivered a refreshing presentation about the pertinent WCO activities and tools. She also provided technical guidance and suggestions to follow up those WCO capacity building assistance activities so that the CLMVT Customs’ efforts in amelioration of administrative procedures and enhancement of border enforcement are synchronized.
