1  TECHNICAL AND FINANCIAL COOPERATION IN THE FIELD OF INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

1.1  Voluntary Contributions for Funds-in-Trust Japan Industrial Property Global

  1. Since 1987, the Government of Japan has been providing voluntary contributions in the field of industrial property (IP) to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The 'WIPO Funds‑in‑Trust/Japan' (FIT/JP) in the field of IP was established with these voluntary funds. The FIT/JP is used to finance various projects for WIPO members in the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), such as holding IP office conferences or symposia, welcoming trainees and IP research students, sending Japan Patent Office (JPO) officials and supporting for the automation and modernization of IP offices.
  2. In addition to the above, since the Japanese fiscal year (FY) 2008, the Government of Japan has been providing a new FIT/JP programme for Africa to the amount of CHF 1.6 million annually. This fund will support activities aimed inter alia at strengthening the legal and administrative frameworks for IP protection, automating and modernizing IP infrastructure to ensure high quality service to users, and sharing the experience of Japanese SMEs and experts in business-oriented IP management and human resource development in Africa. And, since April 2019, Japan has renewed FIT/JP as the Global Funds, which are used without limiting areas of support. Funds-in-Trust Japan Industrial Property Global (FIT Japan IP Global) for FY2020 amounts to CHF 5.78 million.

1.2  Programmes by the JPO

1.2.1  Training Programme

  1. In order to support developing countries to implement the TRIPS Agreement, Japan has been conducting training programmes for these countries. Between April 1996 and March 2021, Japan conducted training to 7,042 trainees in both public and private sectors from 89 countries and regions, primarily in the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, and African region. In the future, with the goal of the efficient implementation of laws in mind, Japan is scheduled to proceed with human resource development activities emphasizing the area of enforcement of intellectual property rights (IPRs).

1.2.1.1  Training programmes for government officials

  1. The JPO has been conducting group training courses about IPRs for government officials. In FY2020, 13 group training courses were conducted, and 255 participants in total completed training.

1.2.1.2  Training programmes for private sectors

  1. The JPO has also been conducting group training courses about IPRs for trainees from private sector. In FY2020, five group training courses were held, and 59 participants in total completed training.

1.2.2  Long-term and Short-term Fellowship

  1. Due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, the long-term fellowship programme under the FIT Japan IP Global in FY2020 was replaced by the online/virtual IP study course held by the Osaka Institute of Technology (OIT). Ten participants from Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Viet Nam completed the four-month online course in the second half of FY2020. The short-term fellowship programme funded by FIT Japan IP Global is to provide trainees with two-week practical working experience in IP-related fields. However, considering the status of COVID-19, this programme was not implemented in FY2020.

1.2.3  Seminar on Intellectual Property Rights for Alumni Association Members

  1. The JPO has suggested to its trainees that an alumni association be established to help disseminate information on IP systems in their home countries and to keep the members of the association informed of current IP developments. The JPO has held follow-up seminars in various Asian countries for those who had completed training programmes in Japan, in order to sustain the fruits of the training programmes and contribute to human resources development. When the JPO receives a request from an alumni association to assist them in holding an IP seminar, the following types of assistance are provided: financial assistance to meet the cost of holding a seminar, and the sending of Japanese speakers to the event. In FY 2020, follow-up seminars were held online in Myanmar and Indonesia.

1.2.4  Expert Missions

  1. Experts and seminar speakers specializing in various areas of IP are sent by the JPO through FIT Japan IP Global and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The experts mainly provide on-site instruction regarding examination practices, computerization and so forth. The JPO has sent long-term experts under the JICA scheme in order to engage in JICA technical cooperation projects being implemented in the IP office of the respective recipient countries. In FY 2020, no experts were sent under the WIPO scheme considering the status of COVID-19.

1.2.5  FIT Japan IP Global Programmes

  1. In FY 2020, seven programmes were implemented with the support of funding from the FIT Japan IP Global.

1.2.6  Provision of the 'Patent Abstracts of Japan (PAJ)' on CD-ROM

  1. There have been difficulties of third parties obtaining patents in other countries for the inventions for which applications have already been filed in Japan. To relieve difficulties and improve the quality of examinations in developing countries, the JPO has been publishing the CD-ROM version Patent Abstracts of Japan (PAJ). PAJ contains English translations of bibliographic data and patent abstracts as well as representative drawings published in the Kokai Tokkyo Koho which means publications of patent applications. Since April 1995, the JPO has been providing PAJ on CD-ROM free of charge to foreign organizations/institutions including major IP Offices and international organizations, and as of August 2021, 67 organizations/institutions receive them on a regular basis.

1.2.7  Project to Publish (in English and Japanese) the Industrial Property Laws and Regulations in Effect in Various Countries

  1. The JPO translated laws and regulations which were related to the industrial property rights of foreign countries into English and Japanese and provided these translations through the JPO's website. At present, translations of the laws and regulations of about 100 countries and intergovernmental organizations can be browsed on its website. Japanese: https://www.jpo.go.jp/system/laws/gaikoku/mokuji.html; English: https://www.jpo.go.jp/e/system/laws/gaikoku/index.html

In 2020, a Group Training Course was cancelled due to the spread of COVID-19, but the PVP Monitoring Programme was held by online for ten ex-participants from eight countries (Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Viet Nam and Zambia).

3.3  Cooperation through the East Asia Plant Variety Protection Forum

  1. To facilitate establishment and international harmonization of PVP systems in East Asian countries, the East Asia Plant Variety Protection Forum (EAPVPF) was formed under the Japan's initiative in 2007 with participation of ASEAN countries, China; Republic of Korea and Japan. The 11th EAPVP Forum Annual Meeting was held in Muntinlupa, Philippines on 1 August 2018 adopted the 'ten-Year Strategic Plan of the EAPVP Forum (2018-2027)' including the Common Direction aiming at establishment of effective PVP systems consistent with the UPOV Convention among Forum members.
