The creation, management and protection of intellectual assets and related rights (IPRs) have moved to the top of national, regional and global agendas over the last 20 years. Today, IP has become a key driver of global economic growth. The Singapore Government has also identified IP as a new growth area for Singapore and is on a mission to develop the country as an IP hub with vibrant IP industries. It is against this backdrop that SMU today launches the new Applied Research Centre for Intellectual Assets and the Law in Asia (ARCIALA). The launch event was graced by Guest-of-honour Ms Indranee Rajah, Singapore’s Senior Minister of State for Law and Education, who delivered an Opening Address at the launch event. Helming the new Centre as its Director is Professor of Law Liu Kung-Chung; the Centre’s Deputy Director is Professor of Law Irene Calboli.
