What we are trying to achieve

Our expected results in 2014/15 are:

  • Wider and better use of WIPO IP statistical information.
  • Wider and better use of WIPO economic analysis in policy formulation.

These contribute to WIPO Strategic Goal V: "World reference source for IP information and analysis."
