Activités de coopération technique au titre de l'article 67 de l'Accord sur les ADPIC ‒ Afficher les détails du document


1.         Australia is committed to sharing information with other WTO members on its technical and financial cooperation activities in the area of intellectual property rights in fulfilment of Article 67 of the TRIPS Agreement.  This is a full report on Australia's intellectual property-related technical cooperation activities with developing and least developed countries. It builds upon annual update reports provided in 2012 (IP/C/W/582/Add.2), 2013 (IP/C/W/593/Add.7), 2014 (IP/C/W/601), 2015 (IP/C/W/610/Add.4), 2016 (IP/C/W/617/Add.1), 2017 (IP/C/W/632/Add.1) and 2018 (IP/C/W/647/Add.2). 


2.         Australia fulfils its Article 67 technical cooperation commitment through multilateral, regional and bilateral programs and activities.  Many activities are focused on developing and least developed countries in the Indo-Pacific region. Australia works closely with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Secretariat and other partners to assist developing and least developed countries to build their intellectual property capacity and systems.


3.         Many of the technical co-operation activities implemented under Article 67 of the TRIPS Agreement align with Australia's strategic focus on using aid as a catalyst to promote economic growth and poverty reduction, including through a strong emphasis on aid for trade. This is embedded in the UN Sustainable Development Goals and our future investments, including activities under the WIPO-Australia Funds in Trust program, will in turn be influenced by these goals.




4.         Websites containing information on Australia's intellectual property regime, which may be considered a technical cooperation resource, include the IP Australia website covering patents, designs, trademarks and plant breeders' rights (; the Department of Communications and the Arts website on copyright developments (; and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website on international IP developments (
