Representatives from Adams & Adams travelled to Swaziland to visit our associate office and the Registry. The main purpose of the visit was to meet with Registry officials to discuss Registry operations and outstanding matters. The visit was productive and discussions were held with the Registrar, Mr Stephen Magagula, who updated us on the current status of the Patents Bill 2015 and the Trade Mark Amendment Bill 2015. There are a number of exciting IP initiatives in Swaziland and regular visits will continue to be made to the Registry to offer our support to any initiatives that assist with the development of IP in Swaziland.
