The World Intellectual Property Organisation's objective for the new century is the promotion of the effective protection and use of intellectual property throughout the world through cooperation with and among member states and all other stakeholders. This is to be achieved by creating an environment and infrastructure conducive to an enhanced understanding of the contribution of IP to human life through economic, social and cultural development, and, in particular, by assisting developing countries in their capacity building for greater access to, and use of, the IP system.
