IP policies in Africa no. 22: Ghana - update

Launch event 21 January 2016 source
In June 2014, I reported on Ghana's progress towards the development of a national IP policy with the assistance of  the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (here).  Their work has come to fruition and Wayne Meiring reports on Managing IP (here) that the country published its policy in early 2016 which will be implemented from September 2016 - 2020.  However, the full text of the NIPPS document is not publicly available.
