    Hanoi (VNA) - World Trade Organisation (WTO) member countries have praised Vietnam for implementing WTO commitments one year after gaining membership.

    During a regular meeting of the WTO’s TRIPS (Intellectual Property) Council in Geneva, representatives from the European Commission, the US, Switzerland, Australia and Japan congratulated Vietnam on its economic and intellectual property achievements.

    They said they hoped Viet Nam continues developing the legal system in this area.

    During the meeting, the TRIPS Council discussed activities related to WTO’s intellectual property rights and reviewed its member countries’ legal systems on the area, including Viet Nam ’s implementation of its commitments.

    Ambassador Ngo Quang Xuan, head of the permanent Vietnamese mission to the United Nations, WTO and other international organisations in Geneva , said one year is not a long time but Vietnam has fulfilled the remaining WTO entry commitments.

    He said that with intellectual property legislation on increased software copyright protection and dealing with violations Vietnam has met WTO’s requirements and the country has completed its WTO admission commitments.

    He also noted that Vietnam has been issuing and enforcing other laws to improve the machinery for intellectual property protection.
