The Japan Patent Office (JPO) updated its Mission, Vision and Values (MVV) in June 2021. In line with this MVV, it will make every effort to promote innovation in order to achieve a society in which ideas are respected and each individual is encouraged to ignite creativity.
The JPO has updated its Mission, Vision and Values (MVV) in order to flexibly respond to the rapidly and significantly changing social situation and environment surrounding intellectual property, and ensure that its administration of intellectual property always meets the needs of the times.
The MVV is a banner to lead JPO staff in the same direction, and to encourage them to share the same goals with everyone involved in intellectual property and cooperate in achieving them.
Based on the updated MVV, the JPO will make every effort to promote innovation in order to achieve a society in which ideas are respected and each individual is encouraged to ignite creativity.
