Darani Vachanavuttivong Moderates INTA Briefing on ASEAN IP Developments

On August 27, Darani Vachanavuttivong, co-managing partner of Tilleke & Gibbins and managing director of the firm’s intellectual property group, moderated an International Trademark Association (INTA) Flash Briefing titled “IP Developments in the ASEAN Region.” The briefing was organized to provide analysis of the ASEAN IPR Action Plan 2016–2025, which aims to harness IP to support the regional grouping’s drive to be an innovative and competitive location for business.

As moderator, Darani welcomed attendees and presented both an overview of economic trends in ASEAN and detailed statistical insights on trademarks, patents, designs, and utility models in member countries. She then welcomed the assistant director of the Consumer Protection and IPR Division in the Market Integration Directorate of the ASEAN Secretariat to share insights on the action plan—and the more recent ASEAN IPR Action Plan 2.0, which was developed after the mid-term review.

A new initiative that just began in early 2021, INTA Flash Briefings are interactive conversations with IP experts and brand owners on emerging policy changes affecting trademarks and related rights across the globe.
