(100) National Intellectual Property (IP) Day 2009

National Intellectual (IP) Day 2009
-Hari Harta Intelek Negara-

Venue: Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC)
Date: 26th April 2009

The National Intellectual Property (IP) Day 2009 was held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), from 23-26 April 2009, in conjunction with the World IP Day on 26 April 2009 .

This annual event was organized by the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs in cooperation with the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) to enhance public awareness on the importance of innovation, protection and commercialization of IP.  It also reflects the Government’s recognition to innovators on their contributions to the nation’s economic and social development. 

This year, “Intellectual Property – Driving Nation’s Competitiveness” 
was chosen as the theme to reflect today’s world where a country’s competitiveness
 is increasingly dependent on its capacity to innovate.  Each year, 26 April marks the
day we celebrate National Intellectual Property Day. The IP Day offers an ideal
opportunity to inform, educate and promote the importance of intellectual property (IP)
as a tool for economic, social and cultural development.

IP represents the product of our mind or intellect. However, without encouragement, 
many great innovations might have remained merely ideas. There were 200 booths 
available for inventors and innovators to showcase their IP assets and to share 
experiences on how such assets have contributed in enhancing their competitiveness. 

I was greatly honored to be featured in their brochure as a 'Malaysian IP Success Story'.
