ISLAMABAD- Adviser to Prime Minister on Commerce and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood on Friday said Pakistan has joined the Madrid System of Trademark of World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), which allows the brand owners to protect their trademarks of different local items. Abdul Razak Dawood held a consultative a meeting at the Ministry of Commerce and discussed matters relating to the intellectual property ecosystem of Pakistan, said a press release issued here. At the outset, he was informed that as a landmark achievement, after joining the Madrid System of Trademark of WIPO, local brand owners now have been allowed to protect their trademarks in over 100 countries through a single and cost-effective procedure. The adviser said the Ministry of Commerce remains committed to supporting Pakistan’s brands and strengthening of intellectual property ecosystem. He was further informed that the President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has signed the instrument of accession which paved the way for Pakistan to become the 108th country in the world to join the Madrid System. The adviser said that Pakistan’s permanent representative of country to the United Nations in Geneva deposited the instrument of accession with the WIPO. He was briefed that with this development, the trademark holders of Pakistan would be able to protect their trademarks in more than 100 countries, by filing a single application at WIPO. Similarly, the member countries of the Protocol would also be able to get protection of their trademarks in Pakistan by using Madrid route, he said. He said that it would go a long way in ameliorating the business environment in Pakistan.

It is not new for us that Indians and their media both are incorrigible. Here you go, this is a prescription for highly affected burns areas, and if this is not effective, we suggest you use Burnol.

"I am glad to inform that Pakistan has registered Basmati Rice as Geographical Indication (GI) under Geographical Indications Act 2020. Under this Act, a GI registry has been formed which will register GIs and maintain the basic record of proprietors & authorised users of GI. 1/2"

@razak_dawood


That is in Pakistan under Pakistans internal law.

Its like India registering the f16 as a Indian plane in India. :woot:

This is NOT a International or EU registration. No one is stopping Pakistan calling its rice Basmati in Pakistan if it wants to.

It can register it as Intergalactic super duper magic Basmati if it wants to in Pakistan, under its internal law. No one will stop you.

Yeah it seems you didn't understand the situation

Pakistan is fighting to defeat India's bid to get Basmati Rice registered as its own product in the EU and as such to strengthen their case the govt has made it a part of their recognized Property under the local GI act

The GI tag that the tweet mentions is just a local designation and only exists to increase Pakistan's chances of winning in intl court , Because how do you claim an international Geographical Indicator for a product when your own country doesn't have such a designation . India, on the other hand, enacted GI legislation in 1999 and by 2003 it came into effect.

The EU hasn't actually given out any GI or IP tags on Basmati Rice as of yet and the case is still ongoing .


India ,Pak,Nepal etc can give whatever local designations and tags they want but the real prize is the protection and opportunties the EU tag comes with and that's still not been given .
