India’s Draft National IPR Strategy: BIO Comments

The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) is grateful for the opportunity to provide comments on India’s Draft National IPR Strategy, hereafter referred to as "Draft Strategy".  Moreover we applaud the Government of India (GOI) for taking on the difficult but important task of improving India’s intellectual property (IP) system to spur innovation.  It is in the interest of BIO and its many members to pass along the experiences and wisdom gained through three decades of experience in bringing new biotechnology products to market.  India is at the cusp of this new and promising industry and it is in this spirit that these comments are provided to the Government of India .
