She emphasized that people need to understand the ways to create and protect their intellectual property for a secure future.

Shri Kiren Rijiju, Minister of State, Home Affairs, called upon people to respect others’ intellectual property and talked about creating a strong IPR enforcement mechanism in the country.

This workshop will help enforcement agencies across the country understand and appreciate the importance of their role in IPR enforcement.
