Members of AmCham Indonesia’s Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Committee met with Brigjen Pol Anom Wibowo, Director of Investigation and Dispute Resolution at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, at his office on May 4, to discuss issues related to IPR implementation.
Based on the annual Special 301 Report released by the United States Trade Representative (USTR), Indonesia remains on the Priority Watch List due to the high number of counterfeit products in the market and the lack of law enforcement. Through the meeting, Anom and his team was eager to further understand private sector concerns. Other government stakeholders were also present, including the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, the Ministry of Finance, and the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM).
Participating companies spoke of their issues, notably in regard to the customs recording system and counterfeit products in e-commerce platforms. They also inquired about the latest progress of the Patent Law revision.
Anom took note of all concerns and invited AmCham to provide further input and engage in greater dialogue going forward.
