Today, Goran Gerasimovski, the Director of the State Office of Industrial Property met with the Director of the Agency for Attracting Foreign Investments, Dejan Pavleski. During the meeting was discussed the protection of industrial property rights as one of the most important factors that companies take into account if they want to invest in a foreign country.
Guided by this, international companies analyze in detail the regulations and conditions for investing in a country. In that direction, in their export strategy, the companies should include industrial property, which increases the competitiveness of the company in the export markets.
This is extremely important for domestic companies with export potential because the protection of the industrial property is one of the most important elements for the successful functioning of the single European market.
The protection of industrial property, your trademark, or industrial design enables a favorable market position and loyal customers for their own products and services in foreign markets.
Statistically, countries with strong systems for the protection of industrial property rights attract more foreign investment compared to countries without existing protection regulations.
The Republic of North Macedonia in this area is harmonized with the international standards for the protection of industrial property rights, providing effective legal protection to companies operating in the country.
