Companies and Intellectual Property (CIPA) Registrar General, Conductor Masena says they are expecting the implementation of the online registration before the end of this year once Parliament passes the bill.

CIPA will be assisted by the government of New Zealand to implement the Companies and Business Names online. Addressing the media on Tuesday Masena said they strive to improve the ease of doing business in Botswana. He said this includes continuous monitoring and review of CIPA processes to improve accessibility of services, improvement of turnaround times for their services and providing a conducive environment for both foreign and domestic investment through other review of legal reforms. “Our ultimate objective is to adopt modern management systems and practices that facilitate quick and effective decision making with the ideal of assuring service delivery and efficiency to the business community,” said Masena.

Masena also announced that CIPA will host the Corporate Registers Forum (CRF) on May 15-16 this year. CRF is an international body consisting of corporate registries from around the globe, which exist to allow member organisations to share experiences and information on the present and future operations of corporate business registration systems.

Under the theme, ‘Corporate Registries, a critical Vehicle for global Economic Growth’ participants will be discussing how corporate registries could play a more effective role in advancing their respective economies and thus contributing to the ease of doing business. “This theme is appropriate as the conference will be discussing how corporate registries could play a more effective role in advancing their respective economies and thus contribute to the ease of doing business,” said Masena. More than 200 delegates from all over the world are expected to attend the conference.
