Each of them gave informative presentations of their brands’ history and background, product lines, and product features etc.
Ms. Sammi S Y PANG, Inspector from the Seizure Identification Unit of Hong Kong Customs welcomed this training seminar as it has provided first-hand information to their legal enforcers of how to inspect counterfeit products. Ms. Jessica Chan, Co-chair of EuroCham IPRBC, also the Intellectual Property Counsel for Asia Pacific of Burberry Limited, thanked Hong Kong Customs and all the brand representatives for their support of this training seminar. Both of them are looking forward to future cooperation for seizure identification.
Representatives from these 6 brands also displayed their genuine and counterfeit samples to allow frontline Customs Officers better understand their product features that distinguish them from the counterfeit ones.
