Speaking at a recent ceremony to hand over Vietnam’s signed treaty document to WIPO Director General Daren Tang in the Swiss city, the ambassador said the WCT is particularly beneficial to the development of the software industry and digital platforms in Vietnam.

Tang, for his part, congratulated Vietnam on joining the WCT, saying he hopes for closer cooperation with Vietnam in the coming time.

Accession to the treaty is of particular importance to Vietnam, as a stronger development of the creative and cultural industries will help Vietnam further fuel economic growth, he added.

The WCT will enter into force in Vietnam three months after the handover of the accession document.
