IP policies in Africa no.54: Zimbabwe
After a long trek through the continent, this Leo is happy to find herself at the last post, Zimbabwe. The country's Inter-Ministerial Committee on Intellectual Property has led the formulation of a draft IP policy that has not yet been made publicly available. Commentary on the policy will be posted on Afro-IP after it is published for comment and the national consultation process is commenced.
