The State of Kuwait, on Wednesday, delivered documents stipulating its endorsement of the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property and the Bern Convention of Protection of Literary and Artistic works.
The move will contribute to improving atmosphere for foreign investments in Kuwait, said Ambassador Jamal Al-Ghanim, Kuwait's Permanent Delegate at the United Nations, in remarks to KUNA. It will also pave the way for Kuwait to join other treaties in this respect. Moreover, the step will help in promoting Kuwait's approach toward maintaining respect for rights of foreigners and boosting confidence in the intellectual rights' system in Kuwait, the envoy said.
The 1833 Paris convention tackles diverse issues such as patents, rights of designing and trade marks. The other treaty addresses issues concerning rights of composers, literary and intellectual producers.
