弁理士制度120周年

7月1日に弁理士制度120周年の記念式典・祝賀会がありました。記念式典では、寛仁親王妃信子殿下のお言葉をはじめとして、内閣総理大臣、衆議院議長、参議院議長、最高裁判所長官、経済産業大臣によるお祝いのお言葉を頂戴いたしました。明治32年の弁理士制度発足から大正、昭和、平成、令和と続く弁理士制度の一端を担えて大変光栄に感じました。

A ceremony and a celebratory party for the 120th anniversary of the Japanese patent attorney were held on July 1, 2019. In the ceremony, we received words of congratulations by the Prime Minister, the Chairman of the House of Representatives, the Chairman of the House of Councilors, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, as well as the words of Nobuko, Princess Tomohito of Mikasa. I felt very honored to be one of the Japanese patent attorneys who have continued through the Meiji Era, the Taisho Era, the Showa Era, the Heisei Era, and the Reiwa Era since the establishment of the Japanese patent attorney in 1899.
