ASIPI - Asociación Interamericana de la Propiedad Intelectual
Dear members of the Executive Committee, Past Presidents, National Delegates, Commission Coordinators, Presidents and Secretaries of Committees and all Members of ASIPI.
On the closing of the year 2019, I would like to thank each one of you for your utmost efforts and enthusiasm with which you have worked in the first year of this new period of management of our Association. We have made important advances and I have felt your commitment to the work and the government plan of this administration.
2019 was the year of ASIPI’s image innovation and a year with great challenges and at the same time, of satisfactions; the new year that is about to begin promises even more.
2020 will be a year of many activities for ASIPI; we will continue to move forward with the same enthusiasm in projects that are already in progress and we will promote an important number of new ones. All of this, always with the objective of protecting the collective interests of our members through the study and dissemination of Intellectual Property and the promotion of updates or new legislations that respond to the reality in which our profession is carried out and improve the ways of defending Intellectual Property.
Our mission is to continue educating and promoting the importance of Intellectual Property; to prepare ourselves solidly for facing technological challenges and to become increasingly involved in innovation processes.
ASIPI’s family continues to grow; the number of Members has increased steadily and the participation of the membership in the activities of our Association is increasingly active. We want to continue working together for a current, modern Association, which renews itself as demanded by the new challenges and the evolution of the topics which gather us as an organization; we want to continue consolidating the feeling of belonging and pride of being part of ASIPI, the reference of Intellectual Property in Latin America.
We live in a time of modernity and surely, 2020 and the new decade we are starting will bring exciting challenges; change is an opportunity to renew and reinvent, and good changes are those we live with competent people, who renew their energies and follow the path by motivating others.
I am convinced that these characteristics are part of the DNA of the members of ASIPI: The enthusiasm, support and friendship of each one of you motivate me!
Facing a new beginning of year and the management I have been entrusted to preside over, I feel accompanied and supported and knowing that I will continue counting on everyone’s collaboration will be crucial for the success of my work at the head of ASIPI.
Sincerely, I thank each one of you very much!
I wish you all an excellent 2020 and hope to see you soon in Montevideo!
President of ASIPI
