Mr. Martin Glass (Hong Kong, China)
7. The representative of Bangladesh, speaking on behalf of the LDC Group, welcomed the consensus that had been reached on the text, and thanked all delegations for their support and constructive approach to the Council's work on the LDC Group proposal, dated 11 November 2011, especially within the short time that had been available. The LDC Group hoped that the same spirit of cooperation and engagement would prevail during the actual discussions on the request for extension of the transition period under Article 66.1 that would be taking place in the TRIPS Council in the following years. He thanked in particular the Chair and the Secretariat for the very positive approach they had taken to convening the present additional session, and leading the Council towards an agreeable outcome.
