Future accession of Hong Kong to the International Trademark System

On June 19, 2020, the Trade Marks Ordinance of Hong Kong was amended to provide a basis for the application of the Madrid Protocol. Once in force, it will be possible to designate Hong Kong in an international trademark, which is a cheaper and easier way of getting trademark rights than through a national trademark. This step paves the way for the implementation of the Madrid Protocol which is expected in the next two years.
