Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind: inventions; literary and artistic works; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. An efficient and equitable intellectual property system can help all countries to realize intellectual property’s potential as a catalyst for economic development and social and cultural well-being. The Government has recognized the importance of a modern intellectual property regime as critical to striking a balance between the interests of innovators and the public interest, providing an environment in which creativity and invention can flourish, for the benefit of all.
Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries.
The Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries (MICAF) has been charged with the responsibility of driving the integration of the production of primary agricultural produce along all the stages of the supply chain through to value added and facilitating full commercialization of outputs of the agriculture, manufacturing, and service sectors.
We have, therefore, placed much energy and enthusiasm into the development of this website to provide timely information on the Ministry, our agencies and programmes.
