The IP Federation has responded to the online consultations on the UK potentially seeking accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and on trade negotiations with USA, Australia and New Zealand. The deadline for responses was 26 October 2018.
In conjunction with this, it has issued a paper which sets out the IP Federation’s views on the proposals of the Department for International Trade (DIT) (insofar as they concern intellectual property rights) –
(i) to seek to accede to the CPTPP, and
(ii) to begin negotiating free trade agreements (FTAs) with the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
