Following the successful model of oriGIn EU, our 2021 General Assembly set the objective to establish additional regional antennas around the world.
In 2022, we have focused on the Latin America region. An informal group of oriGIn members from the region as well as partners and institutions active in Latin America has been established and is meeting on a regular basis. The topics so far discussed are groups governance, controls, sustainability and the relations between public authorities and associations in administering a GI in circumstances when the legal titles are expressly owned by States. Likewise, the group has been exchanging information on GI publications and events related to Latin America.
The objective is to formally establish the regional antenna oriGIn Latin America at our next General Assembly, to be held in Peru in the third quarter of 2023.
