ZIMBABWE - The African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) on March 22, 2019, received the National Business Excellence award 2018 at the annual Megafest National Business Awards organized by Megafest Holdings at the Rainbow Towers in Harare, Zimbabwe, according to the official website of ARIPO.

“ARIPO plays a pivotal role in IP not only in Zimbabwe but across the continent. With the increase of innovation in Africa, ARIPO has ensured that innovators know about IP and register their innovations accordingly. It is for this reason that ARIPO was recognized and nominated for the Award of excellence of the year, says Mercy Matsika, Head Finance at Megafest Holdings.

“It has been our duty since 2008 to become the mouthpiece and voice of the market place. When one does good, it always motivates them to know that someone recognizes and appreciates them,” she adds.

Started in 2008, the Megafest National Awards seeks to honor men, women and organizations who have made strides in projecting a positive picture as well as telling the true story of the Zimbabwean industry through their works.

At the event, ARIPO was represented by the Intellectual Property Development Executive, Mr. Emmanual Sackey, the Corporate Services Executive, Mrs. Hilary Arko-Dadzi and the Copyright and Related Rights Officer, Mr. Amadu Bah.
