The Trademarks Committee in the Ministry of Economy held a meeting to discuss 35 trademarks grievances and to take appropriate decisions for each case.
The meeting was also attended by representatives of Ministry of Economy and chambers of commerce in the UAE.
Mohammed Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz Al Shihhi, Director-General of the Ministry of Economy and the Chairman of the committee, said: "During our first meeting in 2010, we look forward to continuing our efforts associated with brands and trademarks complaints resolutions. The number of complaints raised by trademarks owners is increasing rapidly, therefore we insisted that the committee gathers representatives, who belong to all chambers of commerce and industry in UAE and abide by the country laws and regulations. This will facilitate the process of protecting trademarks owners and supporting the national economy."
