WIPO Director General Daren Tang met with Nguyen Xuan Phuc, President of Viet Nam, during an official visit to the WIPO Headquarters in Geneva. The visit took place on November 29, 2021.
Director General Daren Tang and President Nguyen Xuan Phuc were joined by three young inventors – Tran Nguyen Khanh An (15), Do Trong Minh Duc (18) and Nguyen Hoang Phuc (14). In recognition of their innovative ventilated helmet that helps protect front-line workers against COVID-19, the trio were awarded WIPO Intellectual Property Youth Ambassadorships. As WIPO IP Youth Ambassadors, they will help promote the importance of intellectual property to other young inventors and creators in their region. They will also benefit from tailored IP education facilitated by the WIPO Academy’s IP4Youth&Teachers service.
