On 26 and 27 July, the second meeting of the ARIPO ad hoc
sub-working group on geographical indications (GIs) took place in
Harare, Zimbabwe. The meeting was attended (in person) by the
representatives of the sub-working group from Ghana, Kenya,
Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia.

Two consultants recruited by AfrIPI were also present. One
consultant is tasked with assisting on legal aspects, such as
– legal gap analysis and review of the existing protocol on
GIs. The second consultant is tasked with focusing on the general
needs assessment for managing GIs in the ARIPO region.

The aim of the sub-group of the ad hoc working group is to
discuss a legal framework for the protection of GIs in respect of
the ARIPO Member States.

Further meetings of the sub-group have been planned for 26
