The Director General of ARIPO, Bemanye Twebaze, has congratulated Botswana on the launch of its National Intellectual Property Policy.

On 15 November 2022 Twebaze said that the launch of this document showed that Botswana ‘appreciates that IP primarily aims to enhance lives through solutions to challenges of food security, public health, and clean water, amongst many other foundational elements of a strong economy.

Integrating IP into national policies and strategies will tremendously benefit Botswana’s socio-economic development.’
