The SIC attended the “Steering Committee Meeting of the Prosur Project”

Mr. José Luis Salazar Lopez, Director of the Office of New Creations of the SIC, participated in the "Steering Committee Meeting of the PROSUR Project", organized by the PROSUR Executive Secretariat, which took place in Panama City.

This meeting was a great opportunity to discuss and make decisions related to the future of PROSUR and the possible cooperation with The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), taking into account that the finance aid provided by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will end in December this year.

In addition, the SIC needed to pass on the Pro-Tempore Presidency of the PROSUR Project to the Industrial Property Office of Costa Rica, taking into account that the Pro-Tempore Presidency only lasts 6 months.

Mr. Salazar also had to report to the Steering Committee about the objectives achieved and activities carried out during the course of the semester.
