U.S. Embassy Apia congratulates representatives from the Ministry of Commerce Industry and Labour for their successful participation in the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). On June 28, Chargé d’Affaires Jonathan Lee Yoo presented Charity Malaga, Camelita Tautunu, and Faanuu Lameko with certificates of completion recognizing their participation in an IVLP exchange program on Intellectual Property Rights Regulation Formation.
During the program, participants from governments and private sectors across the region examined policies, strategies, and mechanisms supporting and protecting intellectual rights across a variety of sectors. Participants explored successful methods for implementing and enforcing legal codes and policies to combat theft of intellectual property.
Congratulations again and all the best with implementing all that you have learned.
