Speaking to businesswomen here at a workshop on “awareness among businesswomen about importance”, he said registration and protection of IPR was very important through awareness activities to effectively address issues of piracy and counterfeiting for development of genuine businesses.
The workshop was arranged by Islamabad Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IWCCI) to aware women entrepreneurs regarding the importance of trademarking in their businesses. “We are doing our level best to improve service delivery for IP rights registration while we have close coordination with IPR enforcement agencies including FIA, Police, Pakistan Customs and PEMRA to effectively address issues of piracy and counterfeiting in the country,” he remarked.
Meesaq Arif said the government continued to streamline its governance systems and strengthening IPR regime which would not only help for development of genuine business at local level and attract Foreign Direct Investment but also open avenues for Pakistani businesses for growth in international markets.—APP
