2008 has kicked off well with the National Group. The group had very recently on 10 April 2008 organized a seminar entitled ??ATENT UPDATE 2008??which was received well amongst local IP practitioners, local patent clients and our local government authorities.

It was a half day seminar which was held at the local AIPPI secretariat in Shearn Delamore & Co. The speakers were Mr Karl Rackette, a leading Patent Attorney from Germany who spoke on the topic ??CT ?? Challenges of the National Phase and Mr Chew Phye Keat who discussed the Impact of Public Health Issues on Exclusive Patent Rights.

More seminars are in the pipeline. Further the group is working on having its own website wherein potential members will be able to access the full database of the members of the National Group, list of all members of the National Group together with the biodata of the speakers and the papers presented at the seminars and/ or conferences.

Meetings are being arranged with the local authorities to expose them to the National Groups activities.
