On 17 April 2014, the Institute Diplomacy and Foreign Relations (IDFR) in collaboration with the World Trade Institute (WTI), University of Bern, Switzerland organised a workshop titled “Community Wealth Creation Through Geographical Indications (GI)”. Dr. Sufian Jusoh, Senior External Fellow from the WTI moderated the workshop which was attended by five participants.

During the workshop, participants learned about the overview of GI, GI contributions to socio-economic development, international legal framework for GI, Malaysian GI law and barriers faced by the GI product exporters.

Dr. Sufian Jusoh also emphasised that it is important for the local GI entrepreneurs to register their products under the competent authority or a trade organisation to ensure proper implementation is taken.
