Mr. Tony Miller (Hong Kong, China)
H DECISION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PARAGRAPH 6 OF THE DOHA DECLARATION ON THE TRIPS AGREEMENT AND PUBLIC HEALTH
199. The representative of Brazil said that a constructive and a positive attitude should be shown by all to achieve a quick consensus regarding a solution for an amendment. The African Group proposal had received widespread support from the African countries, the LDCs as well as the ACP countries and he welcomed it as a good basis for further work. He agreed with their interpretation of paragraph 11 of the Decision. The Decision was an interim solution and the Chairman's Statement was not part of the mandate for the amendment. His delegation was willing to engage constructively to achieve a permanent solution to this pressing and urgent humanitarian issue.
