IP policies in Africa: no 15 Djibouti

Djibouti's IP laws are available on WIPOLex here . Djibouti's patent law (Industrial Property Law No. 050/AN/09)  has come into force but (see here) but the country is yet to issue any patents (see IP stats here). As Kingsley found here and here, the country still lacks an official Industrial Property office website (see here) .

The country does not yet have an IP policy. The WIPO Technical Assistance Database lists a meeting here that was held in 2010 that from the limited information available, seems to have discussed IP policy-type issues. However, as a member of COMESA Djibouti subscribes to COMESA's IP policy ( which was reported upon here).
