The forum on intellectual property law and practice organised by the African Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO), in collaboration with the Government of The Gambia through the Ministry of Justice, ended recently at the Sheraton Resort in Brufut village.

Speaking at the second segment of the forum, the Hon. Minister of Tourism and Culture, Fatou Mass Jobe, said the forum was very important and timely focusing on the protection of traditional knowledge, genetic resources and expressions of folklore.

 She said the seminar was also timely because The Gambia is at the threshold of ratifying the Swakupmond Protocol on traditional knowledge and folklore.
