NCIP Director General Uladzimir Rabavolau informed that our country is now considering accession to the Lisbon System.
In his speech Mr. Rabavolau also noted that the Government of Belarus strives to provide all the necessary conditions for realization of scientific and technical potential of each individual, organization and the country as a whole, and works purposefully to strengthen the national intellectual property system.

Implementing them, we increase inventive activity, expand the network of Technology and Innovation Support Centers, introduce the issues of intellectual property rights into the academic environment".
