Ambassador Eduardo Pérez Motta (Mexico)
N.i Annual Updates on Technical Cooperation Activities
275. The Chairman recalled that the Council had traditionally undertaken the annual review of technical cooperation at its September meeting. He suggested that once again the Council invite developed country Members to supply information on their activities pursuant to Article 67 of the TRIPS Agreement. Other Members who also made available technical cooperation should be encouraged to share information on these activities if they so desired. He also suggested that the Council invite those intergovernmental organizations that had observer status in the TRIPS Council to provide information on their activities of relevance and, further, request the WTO Secretariat to report on its activities. The Council should request that this information be made available by the end of August, so that it could be circulated before the Council's meeting scheduled for 17-19 September.
