Episode Info: This episode is part of a special series of interviews with candidates for the position of Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization.  Repeat of earlier interview conducted prior to announcement of Daren Tang's candidacy "Innovation, technology and digitalisation are now key drivers of global economic growth, and enterprise value will increasingly be in intangible assets such as IP, data and know-how"These words come from Daren Tang, the Chief Executive of the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS), that has reached the No. 2 spot for being the most innovative IP office in the world (and Asia's most innovative office), according to a study published by World Trademark Review in February 2019.  Daren is the guest of this new episode of Brand&New. Before he took over the IP Office, he was taking care of its registry.  As an expert in international law, he has been involved in the negotiation of key free-trade agreements, between Singapore and the US, and also the European Union.  Considering, as he says, that “IP is territorial, but innovation is global”, he shares with us his views about the goals and the general role that an IP Office shall play today as well as tomorrow in a small country that is one of the most stable and open economies in the world.Daren is also one of the remaining six candidates for the position of WIPO’s Director General. The Director General will be nominated in March 2020 and appointed in May 2020, for a term beginning October 1, 2020.Every two weeks, on Tuesday, Brand & New gives the floor to inspiring individuals, with a 360-degree vision, to help brand owners, intellectual property lawyers, and marketing and finance professionals (and beyond!) stay curious and agile in an ever-evolving business environment.
