Kuwait: New Law Paves the Way for Accession to the Patent Cooperation Treaty

A new law was voted and published by Kuwait’s Council of Ministers on March 27, 2016 which paves the way for the country’s accession to the Patent Cooperation Treaty.

Kuwait realizes that a developed and advanced IP system is a fundamental step towards strengthening its economic growth. The date of accession and when the Treaty will go into force are yet to be determined.
