An Exhibition Hall for Intellectual Products
Some time ago an intellectual product exhibition hall was newly built at the Invention Office of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, attracting public attention.
I met Ryu Chol Ho, department chief of the Invention Office, at the exhibition hall. Ryu said, “The exhibition hall works to quickly and widely promote intellectual products including inventions, patents and sci-tech hits that are highly appraised and deemed negotiable in the country, and connect them with the customers regularly. It activates the dissemination, exchange and circulation of new technical skills and makes a positive contribution to the development of knowledge-based economy.”
On display in the hall are now products like direct-current high-voltage butterfly catcher and portable soil analyzer submitted by many units of agriculture, construction, and power, coal, metal, mining, machine and chemical industries. Besides, there are on show sports apparatuses, daily necessities, medicines and health foods, such as mobile multi-purpose net posts, single-motor hand lawn mower, nano-gold injection, natural amino-sugar compound injection and chlorella health food. Inventions, new devices of technology and products of new idea are displayed here in the form of spot goods, diagram, brochures and videos. The exhibition hall also provides technological service such as search for inventions and patents, translation of patent documents, software and hardware offerings, application for registration of invention and technological consultation.
