A Monegasque delegation, headed by H.E. Ms. Carole Lanteri, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of the Principality of Monaco to the United Nations Office at Geneva, is currently taking part in the 59th series of meetings of the Assemblies of the Member States of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), which is being held in Geneva from 30 September to 9 October 2019.

At this meeting, the main governing bodies of WIPO and the unions it administers will have to take important decisions with regard to the pursuit of their activities, including the adoption of the Programme and Budget for the period of 2020-2021.  The member States will also address technical issues related to intellectual property, particularly the impact on this sector of the development of technologies that use artificial intelligence.  In this regard, the Director General of WIPO, Mr. Francis Gurry, presenting his annual report at the opening of these Assemblies, stated that, today, multilateral cooperation is necessary to identify the challenges associated with artificial intelligence and intellectual property and then respond to these challenges through the development and adoption of single global standards.

As a reminder, WIPO is the specialised agency of the United Nations that is responsible for administering international agreements in the field of intellectual property (patents, copyright, industrial designs, geographical indications, etc.) and for issuing international intellectual property rights.  It is also responsible for developing standards at the international level in the field of intellectual property, and offers a variety of services to States, companies and individuals (such as mediation, arbitration, databases, etc.).
