South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesk

Intellectual Property (IP) rights are a fundamental factor for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that must be taken into account before they go abroad.

An effective IP strategy is crucial for European Union (EU) SMEs to safely enter new markets and succeed in their internationalization process. This is particularly important if companies are looking for licensing their products to a local partner in South-East Asia or selling through local agents.

The South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesk is an initiative of the European Commission to support European Union (EU) SMEs to both protect and enforce their IP rights in or relating to South-East Asian countries, through the provision of free information and services.
