The incoming director general of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), Daren Tang, had a meeting with the heads of various Ibero-American IP offices, including Bolivia's Senapi. 

According to Lexology, in the meeting, the director general underlined that close cooperation is especially important to share good practice during the Covid-19 crisis. Tang, who was attending his first meeting with the region’s IP office collective, stated that when he begins his role from 1 October 2020, he will “work to further strengthen ties between countries and serve as a bridge between regions”.

Expanding on that, Tang highlighted his commitment to bring “technological and digitisation tools” to the various offices and that, in this time of a pandemic, “creativity has accelerated innovation and this anticipates a promising future”.
