Swiss-Kenyan Project on GI launched

According to a news item by the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, a Swiss – Kenya Project on Geographical Indications (SKGI) has been launched with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Swiss and the Kenyan IP offices.

The project aims to establish a “functional protection system for geographical indications in Kenya that should contribute to the economic success of Kenyan products by giving them the opportunity to fill new market niches and to achieve higher profits across the entire value-chain”.
