IMPI: well-equipped for the future


IMPI: well-equipped for the future

Orbon Alija /

Five years into his tenure as IMPI’s director general, Miguel Ángel Margáin is positive about the progress Mexico has made in IP, particularly on the trademark front, as WIPR finds out.

When Miguel Ángel Margáin took up his post as director general of the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) in 2013, he told WIPR he wanted to develop and strengthen Mexico’s IP culture.

Just one month into the role, Margáin enjoyed success as Mexico acceded to the Madrid Protocol.

Now, five years on, updates that have been made to Mexico’s domestic legal framework signal a turning point for the country’s IP landscape, he says.
