Geographical Indications at the Crossroads of Trade, Development, and Culture in Asia-Pacific
by Professor Ng-Loy Wee Loon and Visiting Professor Irene Calboli
26 & 27 March 2015
Lee Sheridan Room, Eu Tong Seng Building, NUS (BTC)

Some studies have shown that geographical indications of origin (GIs) can provide higher economic returns to farmers and other holders of traditional knowledge through price premiums, foster tourism and/or enhance rural development. Other studies have argued that protection of GIs can assist in preservation indigenous knowledge and culture. The various papers presented at this workshop will later be published in a collective volume, which aims at becoming a trendsetter for a constructive debate on GI protection in Asia and on a global scale beyond this region
