New WIPO director general from SE Asia

The Coordination Committee of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has nominated Mr. Daren Tang from Singapore for the post of Director General to succeed Francis Gurry. The WIPO General Assembly will meet in an extraordinary session on May 7-8, 2020, to confirm the nomination. Mr Tang is currently the CEO of IPOS, Singapore's IP office. This is great news for SE Asia, to have one of its own as the worlds top IP official.
