Australia provides $3 Million to assist least-developed and developing countries

8 October 2015

The new three-year funding will build on the successes of the first FIT program and extend the work to new partner countries and expand support for innovative intellectual property (IP) activities.

We are working with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and WIPO to expand innovative capacity building IP programs that will benefit developing and least developed countries, with a focus on the Indo-Pacific region.

Our Director General, Patricia Kelly, said that she is pleased to be able to build on the outcomes achieved under the first FIT. ‘IP Australia is proud to continue the work of the WIPO Australia Funds in Trust program, which will allow our partner countries to develop their IP systems and enhance their capacity to use IP to aid economic development’.
