ACTA – Stakeholders’ Consultation Meeting

The Directorate General for Trade of the European Commission has organised a meeting on 22 March 2010, to inform and consult interested parties about the negotiation of a plurilateral Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).

The goal of ACTA is to provide an improved framework for countries committed to intellectual property protection, in view of effectively addressing the challenges of IPR infringement today.

The purposes of the meeting was to:

1) Inform stakeholders about the ACTA goals and the negotiation process so far;

2) Receive comments from stakeholders about their views (expectations or concerns) regarding ACTA.

Relevant information about the ACTA negotiations can be found at the External Trade website. A detailed written state-of-play of the negotiation is available at the same location.
