WIPO Director General Daren Tang welcomes Uzbekistan’s accession to the Marrakesh Treaty. With Uzbekistan’s membership, the Treaty now includes 86 contracting parties. The WIPO-administered Marrakesh Treaty makes the production and international transfer of specially-adapted books for people with blindness or visual impairments easier – expanding their learning, education and leisure opportunities.
Ulugbek Lapasov, Uzbekistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and other International Organizations in Geneva, deposited the instrument of accession on March 7, 2022.
