The recognized and protected geographical indications for products and services (z.B. Swiss Watches, Emmentaler AOP, Swiss Made) are often symbols of quality and reputation. The economic value of this data to producers and consumers is high. However, the value of Swiss geographical indications depends on the fact that they are protected from counterfeiting and abuse, not only in Switzerland, but also in export markets. This protection is made possible by a number of bilateral and multilateral agreements. The 1958 Lisbon Convention, managed by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), allowed for the protection of registered appellations of origin (AO). However, the success of this agreement has been modest; Only about 30 countries have ratified it. Switzerland also did not join. Negotiations under the WTO on extending the level of protection and creating a multilateral register of AOs and geographical indications (GIs) under the TRIPS agreement have not progressed.
Countries interested in IM protection have therefore developed the Lisbon Agreement. With the so-called Geneva Act, which was negotiated in 2015 and came into force on 26 February 2020, there is now an international treaty that is accessible not only to AO, but also to all GIs and which also opens up new opportunities for interested parties in Switzerland. That is why the Federal Council is proposing to ratify the Geneva Act and amend the Trademark Act for its implementation. Diplomats from South Korea, North Korea, the People`s Republic of China (PRC), the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and the United States of America discussed the Korean side of the conference. For Indochina, the agreements were concluded between France, Viet Minh, the USSR, the PRC, the United States, the United Kingdom and the future states of French Indochina.  The agreement temporarily separated Vietnam into two zones, a northern area to be ruled by Viet Minh and a southern area to be ruled by the State of Vietnam and then under the leadership of former Emperor Beo II. A final declaration of the conference, issued by the British President of the Conference, called for parliamentary elections to be held for the creation of a single Vietnamese state until July 1956. Although they helped create the agreements, they were not signed directly or accepted by delegates from the state of Vietnam and the United States, and the State of Vietnam refused to allow elections, which led to the Vietnam War the following year.
The conference signed three separate ceasefire agreements on Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. For Venezuela, the aim of the agreement is to force the parties to find a satisfactory solution to a practical agreement between the two countries. It considers that the nullity of the arbitrary price of Paris is implicitly and explicitly accepted in the text of the document signed by Guyana when it was still a colony and that, without this recognition, the agreement simply would not have made sense, that Guyana should have signed it.  While the three conventions (later called the Geneva Conventions) were dated 20 July (to meet The 30-day Deadline of Mends France), they were actually signed on the morning of 21 July. :605 The Geneva Convention is an interim agreement to reach a definitive solution, many define it as a ”convention for the obtaining of an agreement” and although the Venezuelan interpretation invalidates the 1899 arbitral award, the status quo it has inferred is maintained.
