As India holds the Presidency of G20 for 2023, Confederation of Indian Industry(CII) is the only B20 Secretariat by the Government of India to lead this initiative. One of the key agenda of the B20 initiative is to encourage consistent and balanced adoption of regulatory principles on global IP system.
CII supports the new industrial revolution, and always explore the scope of building IP intensive ecosystem and enabled its impact on the world. As you are aware that CII has already started IP movement which highlights and reinforce the unique strengths of Indian industry, academia, and other institutions. The basic purpose this drive is to make Intellectual Property Rights as a tool to enhance value addition, competitiveness & improve quality of life and thus 'Build India for a New World'.
We have been celebrating World Intellectual Property Day (26 April), since 2009 in partnership with Government of India, International Partners and conducting various IP Initiatives. The Global IP Convention in its journey of past 13 editions have emerged as a global platform with participation from many countries. The event is strategically structured to also provide the participants with new and enhanced business opportunities by way of interacting not only with the international and domestic participants but also with the Government.
This year CII is organizing 14th edition of Global Intellectual Property Convention with the theme of "Strengthening the global intellectual property rights (IPR) regime" on 26 April 2023 at India Habitat Center, New Delhi.
