The Geographical Indications are an invaluable historical and cultural heritage of the territories of production and carriers of precious values for mankind, to be conveyed to future generations.

The constant increase of the Geographical Indications’ productivity and market values and the continuously growing interest of the consumers are a further confirmation of the central role of the GIs in the territorial economies of the entire World.

On October 11th, 2017, on the occasion of the G7 Ministerial Meeting Agriculture, international Geographical Indications producers’ organizations, stakeholders, policymakers and experts gathered in Bergamo for the first G7GI Conference to draw up, commit to and sign a declaration which can help determine the GIs sector’s priority topics to put in the center of a new commitment of the global politics and local governments.

 

The Bergamo Declaration identifies the following four main topics

Rafforzamento-della-tutela1

ENHANCED PROTECTION

The creation of a transparent and simple GIs multilateral system of protection for both consumers and producers.
