World Intellectual Property Organization

External Offices

WIPO’s network of External Offices forms an integral part of the Organization designed to bring our services and cooperation closer to our Member States, our stakeholders and our partners. In doing so, our External Offices add clear value, efficiency and effectiveness to program delivery and respond to the specific needs and priorities of the countries and regions they serve.

The External Offices provide cost-effective support services in relation to the PCT, Madrid and Hague systems; arbitration and mediation; collective management; and development and capacity building.

In a fast-changing world, WIPO’s External Offices are an increasingly important part of the Organization’s enhanced engagement with our Member States and stakeholders, on the ground, as we lead the development of a balanced and effective international intellectual property system that enables innovation and creativity for the benefit of all.
