The Ministry of Economic Affairs officially launched the National Intellectual Property Policy (NIPP) 2018 to provide intellectual property (IP) rights to promote creativity and innovation for social, cultural and economic development. The policy was approved during the 151st session of the Cabinet held on February 13, 2018.

Changes to legislative frameworks on the protection of intellectual property rights that are well suited to socio-economic conditions of the country, building collaboration between the industry and R&D institutions to engage in conducting joint researches, framing of appropriate protection regimes for traditional knowledge, traditional culture expressions and genetic resources that concerns the indigenous communities and greater participation at the multilateral level to implicate and preserve national interests on intellectual property, among others.
