Commerce and industry minister Anand Sharma, who is in Geneva said: “We recognise that this instrument will provide an opportunity for Indian companies, which are increasing their global footprint, to register trademarks in member countries of the Protocol through a single application, while also allowing foreign companies a similar dispensation.”

Sharma is at the World Intell-ectual Property Organisation (WIPO) headquarters for a high level policy dialogue.
