Ghana woos Russia’s support for Dr Edward Kwakwa’s candidature for WIPO

The Minister of Communication, Mrs Ursula Owusu- Ekuful has reiterated the importance of knowledge sharing in the Intellectual Property Space.

She added that there was also the need for Russia to offer support to Africa to enable the continent have a voice on the Intellectual Property Platform.

The minister made the remarks during a meeting with some top Russian government officials to whip up support for Ghana’s candidate for the upcoming World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) elections, Dr.Edward Kwakwa.

In another meeting with Russia’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and the country’s President’s special envoy, Mr Mikhail Bodgdanov, Mrs Ursula Owusu- Ekuful assured that Dr Kwakwa when given the nod would give off his best by promoting fair representation for all, at the executive management level to facilitate a broader global impact.

The minister was accompanied by Ghana’s Ambassador to Russia, Dr Lesley Akyaa Opoku Ware among other staff of Ghana’s Foreign Affairs Ministry.
