In line with recent developments in the rest of the region, Cambodia has become a prime destination for European SME's to expand their businesses to. This gives all the more reason for them to protect their intellectual property rights in an often unfamiliar environment. Especially as Cambodia's IPR legislation and system are relatively young, it is important to be up to date with recent developments. Our IPR Expert Sovath Phin will expand on the IPR Landscape in Cambodia with specific emphasis on Licensing and Franchising.
