17 July 2020- MyIPO’s monthly assembly for July 2020 which was jointly organized by Patent Division and Industrial Design Division was made meaningful with the presence of newly appointed Chairman of MyIPO, YB Datuk Mohamad bin Hj Alamin.

The assembly was the first after the Movement Control Order (MCO) was enforced on March 18 to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“MyIPO need to be recognized by the world and become a leading IP office in ASEAN region. Let’s work together” Datuk Alamin said in his speech.

He added, “It is essential for us to further IP awareness programmes to awaken the society to the concept and importance of IP. The society need to be educated about IP and the laws so they can appreciate the need for such rights and can adhere to them. Hence, we should invest some amount of money for more active promotional activities”.

The assembly was held within the standard operating procedure set by the National Security Council to curb the spread of COVID-19 and was attended by not more than 200 staff.
