COLOMBO (Xinhua) – Sri Lanka is working with Geneva-based World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) to introduce intellectual property support to Sri Lanka’s traditional, indigenous medicine system. Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishard Bathiudeen said Sri Lanka’s very own indigenous medical practice is centuries old, and co-exists with the country’s Ayurveda practice. “We are expanding our intellectual property system to protect our traditional medicine system as well,” he said, adding the government has been working on this for the last five years.
