To mark the 25th anniversary of the TRIPS Agreement in 2020, the Secretariat organized a commemorative event on 24 November 2020, followed by a series of webinars continuing into 2021. These allowed relevant stakeholders to reflect on the past, present and future of the most comprehensive multilateral treaty on intellectual property protection and enforcement.
