The president Victor Yushchenko criticizes the Cabinet and the Verkhovna Rada for underestimation of a role of intellectual property in development of national economy.
He told about it, opening National Security and Defense Council meeting.
"This sphere isn't considered neither the government, nor parliament as a powerful resource on development and stabilization of the domestic economic market... There is an underestimation by the state of a role of intellectual property in development of national economy", - Yushchenko told.
In his opinion, the main problems on protection and development of the intellectual sphere are non-use of available capacity of Ukraine and insufficient efficiency of activity of the state system of legal protection of intellectual property.
The president also stated a regret that to this sphere in Ukraine investments don't arrive.
As it was reported, at the end of October the committee of the Verkhovna Rada concerning science and education suggested the Cabinet to create uniform central executive authority in the sphere of intellectual property.
