The Cabinet of Ministers at the initiative of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade has decided to set up the Intellectual Property Council under the leadership of First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Economic Development and Trade Stepan Kubiv, who will coordinate the processes for the functioning and development of a system for the legal protection of intellectual property in Ukraine.
“The creation of the council is another important step towards the development of the intellectual property system in Ukraine, which is an important priority for the work of the government. This also corresponds to Ukraine’s obligations under international agreements that are part of the world system for the protection of intellectual property rights,” Kubiv said.
According to the report, the council will act as an interim advisory body to the Cabinet of Ministers.
Its main tasks are coordination of interaction of executive authorities in the field of intellectual property, as well as development of proposals for the development of this sphere, ensuring Ukraine’s integration into the international and European intellectual space.
