A program, the first of its kind, will be introduced in Cambodia allowing patents registered in South Korea to have the same effect in the Southeast Asian nation.
Park Won-joo, commissioner of the Korean Intellectual Property Office, signed a memorandum of understanding(MOU) on this patent agreement with Cambodian Minister of Industry and Handicraft Cham Prasidh in Phnom Penh on Friday.
Under the program which is to take effect from November, patents registered in Korea can obtain the same validity in Cambodia within three months following a simple process of submitting a request for patent recognition and related documentation.
