                1. This document presents a report on main cooperation programmes and activities undertaken by the African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) from 1 October 2018 to 20 September 2019 which are relevant to the TRIPS Agreement and other IP components, following the invitation of the Chair of the Council for TRIPS in his letter of 28 June 2019 to provide updated information on such activities.
                2. During the period at stake, the activities that ARIPO undertook in the framework of cooperation relevant to the TRIPS Agreement covered mainly the capacity building and awareness creation organized either solely or in collaboration with cooperating partners.
                3. In capacity building ARIPO continued sponsoring students from Member States to undertake the Master Programme in Intellectual Property that is offered at the Africa University in Mutare, Zimbabwe, in collaboration with WIPO and the Japan Patent Office. ARIPO is also sponsoring a similar programme (MPhil) in Ghana (in collaboration with the Kumasi Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology) and in Tanzania (in collaboration with the University of Dar es Salaam). In awareness creation, the flagship initiative undertaken in collaboration with WIPO is the organization of IP weeks in selected Member States.
                4. Another important highlight worth noting is a high-level mission that was conducted in Eswatini from 13 to 15 May 2019 in collaboration with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The objectives of the mission included the assessment of the implementation of the Intellectual Property Development Plan that was developed in 2015 with the technical support of WIPO; to deliver a presentation to the Cabinet of the Kingdom of Eswatini on "IP and Development and the role of the IP Office"; and to create awareness on IP among Senior Government Officials.
  • The following matrix provides details on technical and financial cooperation activities relevant to the TRIPS Agreement and other IP components undertaken by ARIPO, and they cover Training initiatives and awareness creation; Assistance to National Intellectual Property Offices in ARIPO Member States; and publications.
