Aminou Ndala TITA, a former intern at OAPI and now working for non profit Taking IT Global, has kindly provided his surprise account of OAPI's new clothes, stylish they are too.
"I just realized I was knocking at the wrong door yesterday when I visited OAPI. I was informed by a hawker that OAPI has gone modern. They are now in a new structure. I don’t know why this was hidden from us. We all contributed to the realization of this …especially through the money we give for applications.
I also learned that OAPI inaugurated this new building on March 28, 2014. The event was under the Patronage of His Excellency Paul Biya, President of the Republic of Cameroon. It was attended by experts and special guests from around the world including Ministers from the 17 Member States of OAPI.
This building is composed of seven floors and three basements. It will be the head quarter of the Organization and will also host the High Commission of Appeal and the Denis Ekani IP Academy. This ambitious project was completed in less than three years. It’s really OAPI show show. (Pictures attached)Visit: www.oapi.int everything goes in French"
