IP policies in Africa no. 40: São Tomé and Príncipe

São Tome and Principe recently joined ARIPO (see Aurelia's post here).  WIPO  has drafted a National Intellectual Property Development Plan  for the country upon its request and held validation meeting on the policy in September 2014 ( see meeting details here, in  French). The policy itself is not yet publicly available but hopefully it will be available on WIPOLex after its formal adoption by the country.
