Somalia does not yet have a national IP policy nor could this Leo find any information pertaining to the preparation of one. As a member of ARIPO, Somalia participates in annual round table sessions for Heads of IP offices on Topical IP Policy issues which are held in conjunction the Administrative Council and Ordinary Session of the ARIPO Council of Ministers (see here).
