Minutes - TRIPS Council - View details of the intervention/statement

Ambassador Choi Hyuck (Korea)
G DECISION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PARAGRAPH 6 OF THE DOHA DECLARATION ON THE TRIPS AGREEMENT AND PUBLIC HEALTH
193. The representative of Jamaica said that the issue of affordable access to pharmaceutical products remained a priority for her delegation and hoped that a permanent solution could be found as soon as possible, preferably before the Hong Kong Ministerial Conference. She supported the view that the Chairman's Statement was not an integral part of the Decision. It had been devised during the process in 2003 to reach a consensus. This purpose had been served and there was no need for the Chairman's Statement at this stage. She suggested that the Decision be the only basis for the amendment process.
