During the meeting, discussions took place on the outline of the Intellectual Property Strategic Program 2010, among other topics.
In his address, Prime Minister Hatoyama said, "I extend my sincere appreciation for your discussions and approval of the outline of the Intellectual Property Strategic Program 2010.
