5. The Chairperson recalled that, at its meeting in March, the Council had initiated the review of the TRIPS implementing legislation of Viet Nam. It had been agreed that Members that wished to pose questions to Viet Nam after the meeting should do so by the end of April so as to give Viet Nam enough time to prepare its replies before the present meeting. Since then, Viet Nam had received questions from Chinese Taipei, Japan, the United States, the European Communities, Switzerland and Canada (documents IP/C/W/506-509, 511 and 512, respectively). Viet Nam's responses to the questions from Chinese Taipei, Japan, the United States, the European Communities and Switzerland had just been received and were being made available to delegations as advance copies.
