Budapest (MTI) – Hungary stands in 13th place on the International Intellectual Property Index, ahead of Poland, Israel and Canada among others, the Economy Ministry said on Thursday.
A report released by the US Chamber’s Global Intellectual Property Center, dubbed The Roots of Innovation, described Hungary as actively and successfully working to improve its IP performance, the ministry said in a statement.
The report published annually since 2012 covers 45 countries that generate 90 percent of the world’s gross domestic product. The countries surveyed are considered important from strategic and market points of view. This is the first year that Hungary has been included, the ministry added.
