A to Z of African official IP websites no.18: Eritrea

Afro-IP's A-to-Z series of visits to the official IP websites of African states visits one of Africa's more recent states, the State of Eritrea.  Again, Afro-IP's intrepid e-explorer Kingsley Egbuonu finds little to be cheerful about.

Overview
Eritrea is only a contracting party to the Convention establishing the World Intellectual Property Organization. However, it is signatory to most IP-related multilateral treaties and regional economic integration treaties.
