The Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) is essential for promoting trade in knowledge and innovation, resolving intellectual property trade disputes and ensuring the freedom of World Trade Organization (WTO) members to pursue their domestic objectives. The current issues in the TRIPS agreement range from access to medicines and concerns relating to public health from the time frame of COVID 19 to issues relating to geographical indications, digital trade, E- commerce, traditional knowledge and genetic resources. This paper focuses mainly on the current issue of biotechnology and traditional knowledge in the TRIPS agreement and how it is addressed by the World Trade Organization.
