AmCham Macedonia launches anti-counterfeiting campaign

On October 5 2013 the American Chamber of Commerce in Macedonia, in cooperation with the Macedonian Patent and Trademark Office and the United States Embassy in Macedonia, launched a campaign under the slogan "Stay healthy, use originals" in order to raise awareness of the health risks associated with the use of counterfeit products.

The campaign was launched at a shopping mall in the capital city of Skopje. Counterfeit products such as perfumes, sunglasses, body creams and shampoo were displayed in front of the mall entrance where passers-by gathered to find out how to identify counterfeit items and whom to contact to report suspected counterfeits.

Similar public awareness events are due to be organised in several other towns in Macedonia.
