PAPUA NEW GUINEA

Papua New Guinea is rich in biological diversity. It has a population of 6.5 million with about 800 spoken languages. It has some of the most unique species of plants and animals on the planet. This provides the most ideal conditions for scientific studies and research. It is also abundant in traditional art and folklore, which is the basis of interesting and unique creations of local craftsmanship, textile designing, and many other traditional creations and performances.

Map of Papua New Guinea

The situation is different from the 1960s and 70s with more local creativity, manufacturing activity, establishment of research institutions and universities, the emergence of more local artists and writers, recording studios, privately owned radio stations.

In the absence of an effective IP system, Papua New Guineans have not been able to protect their intellectual property and obtain maximum benefits from creativity and innovative activities. Therefore the great need to introduce and enact appropriate intellectual property laws has been existing for a long time.

Given this background, the Government of PNG through its Intellectual Property Office (IPOPNG) has committed itself during the last 10 years in building an intellectual property system for the country.
