Speakers will explore the concept of GI’s, and the international system underpinning its administration. The discussions will also reflect on opportunities for Nigeria in utilizing local GIs products to its advantage in international trade, the practical mechanisms required for registering GI’s in Nigeria, and the necessary local policy and/or legislative frameworks that could support Nigeria’s growth in this area.
