Belarus joins Hague System
The government of Belarus deposited its instrument of accession to the 1999 Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement on 19 April.
The accession means that designers in Belarus can begin using the Hague System to protect their designs internationally on 19 July 2021, and non-residents seeking protection in Belarus will be able to designate the country in their international applications from the same date.
The country becomes the 66th contracting party to the 1999 Act and the 75th member of the Hague Union. The total number of countries covered by the Hague System is now 92.
Belarus has a population of about 9.4 million and exports include construction machinery, trucks and tractors, buses and trams. The most famous Belorussian designer was probably painter and artist Marc Chagall (Moishe Shagal).
