Cambodia is the first country to sign up to Geographical Indication Treaty

March 12, 2018

In march of 2018, Cambodia became the first country in the world to join the Geneva Act of the Lisbon Agreement on Appellations of Origin and Geographical Indications.

This Act provides a system for a single application, through The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)​ and a single set of fees, for registering appellations of origin or geographical indications across multiple jurisdictions, rather than applying  in each country individually.​

Now, this ​Act needs four more parties to join before entering​ into force.
