The South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesk is inviting you to an upcoming webinar with the focus on “How to expand your Geographical Indication to South-East Asia”.

Geographical Indications, also known as GIs, have an important economic value and are increasingly appreciated in South-East Asia (SEA) countries. Their protection can be key to your success abroad. In this live session, you will have the opportunity to learn key aspects on the GI scenario in the 10 SEA countries, such as why protecting your GI is so important, what can and cannot be protected as a GI, as well as how to register your GI in South-East Asia.
