WIPO Assemblies 2019: Director General Reports Positive Results in Opening Address

WIPO Director General Francis Gurry welcomed delegates to the WIPO Assemblies 2019 on September 30, 2019, reporting excellent results in the Organization’s global intellectual property (IP) services and finances while noting that record demand for IP rights has created increased challenges for the administration of IP in the global economy.

Over 1,000 delegates from WIPO’s 192 member states met to consider a range of work on issues related to intellectual property, which is becoming the bedrock for economic policy in a globalized, technology-driven world.

The Assemblies of the Member States of WIPO: Fifty-Ninth Series of Meetings was held September 30 through October 9, 2019, at WIPO headquarters in Geneva.
