US-ASEAN Workshop on IP Enforcement and Public Awareness

By Tomwit Jarnson, Director, Government Affairs and Public Policy at AMCHAM Thailand.

I participated as a speaker in the panel discussion on  “Working Together: Public and Private Initiatives” of the ASEAN-USPTO Workshop on Intellectual Property Enforcement, Public Awareness and Consumer Behavior on November 8, at Lancaster Bangkok Hotel. 
  • Other panelists were John DaSilva/Kenan Institute;  Desarack Teso/Microsoft and U.S.ABC;  Alec Wheatley/EABC;  Norihisa Kato/JETRO, and Eleonora Casarosa/Piaggio Group (Vietnam).  The moderator was Peter Fowler/USPTO, Washington, D.C.
  • The discussion covered advocacy work, outreach, the value of public-private collaboration, educating the public, and enforcement.
  • It was an excellent opportunity to have AMCHAM represented in this forum, not only to highlight AMCHAM’s advocacy efforts, but also to underscore AMCHAM’s commitment, as a major player, in working with the Thai government to address the immense challenge of intellectual property protection.
