On World IP Day this year, WIPO’s focus is on designing the future.
In October 2000, a proposal of designating World IP Day submitted by China and Algeria was passed in the 35th Assembly of WIPO Member States, which decided to designate April 26 as the annual World IP Day from 2001 onwards. The event seeks to raise public awareness of IP in everyday living, increases public understanding of the meaning of IP , and praises how the creator and innovator help to shape the world and encourage people to respect IPR.
WIPO was established by the WIPO Convention in 1967. China became its 90th member state on June 3, 1980. As of now, WIPO houses 184 member states.
