World IP Day (WIPD) on 26 April is an annual event to honour the role of IP in encouraging innovation and creativity. Celebrated by over 190 member states of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), this year’s WIPD looks at how IP assets can drive business development, economic recovery and human progress.
FT Consulting is heartened that our Group Managing Partner, Mr Winston Chan, was invited to the launch of the Singapore IP Strategy (SIPS) 2030. The event was graced by Ms Indranee Rajah, Minister, Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for Finance and Second Minister for National Development, and Mr Edwin Tong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth and Second Minister for Law.
The #SIPS2030 is a 10-year blueprint that “aims to strengthen Singapore’s position as a global hub for Intangible Asset and Intellectual Property (IA/IP), attract and grow innovative enterprises using IA/IP, and develop good jobs and valuable skills in IA/IP,” helping local businesses and workforce emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic.
