Patent strategies for the Asean region
Published on: 13 April 2017
Are you or your clients developing an international patenting strategy? You would certainly consider the world’s 7th largest economy, particularly when it is projected to become the 4th largest. This “regional economy” is ASEAN. So when one considers an “ASEAN IP strategy” one must consider what is meant by “ASEAN” and “Asia” as these terms can be often loosely interpreted or even used interchangeably. ASEAN is the acronym for the Association of South East Asian Nations. But what does this mean? First, ASEAN does not include China, Japan and Korea – part of the “IP 5”. Nor does ASEAN include “Western Asia” which broadly means west of Myanmar – an area that takes in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Further, it does not include the region often known as “Oceania” which comprises Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands – the largest being Papua New Guinea. This analysis of Asia, by exclusion, results in the “ASEAN 10” – Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar, and this is the region the subject of this review.
