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

Ambassador Federico A. González (Paraguay) (24-25 October) and Mr. Martin Glass (Hong Kong, China) (17 November)
European Union
18. The representative of the European Union said that it was important to discuss the issue of enforcement in the TRIPS Council. It was not possible at one TRIPS session to be accused of lack of transparency and three sessions later, when his delegation wished to provide information in all transparency, to be confronted with objections. The concern about lack of transparency had earlier been raised under an enforcement heading. He looked forward to an informative debate at the present meeting and, if there was considerable interest by Members, it could be pursued in future meetings.
