Bangladesh has gained the recognition of its four new products as Geographical Indication (GI) products.

So far, Bangladesh has got the ownership of a total of 28 GI products, read press release on Monday.

The four new products are Haribhanga Mango of Rangpur, Agar of Moulvibazar, Agar Atar of Moulvibazar, and Monda (Sweetmeat) of Muktagacha.

The Department of Patents, Deigns and Trademarks (DPDT) recognises and certifies GI products under the Ministry of Industry in accordance with the norms of the International Property Rights Organization (WIPO).

In 2013, the Geographical Indication Products (Registration and Protection) Act was enacted. In 2015, the DPDT called for the registration of GI products after the enactment of the law.
