78. At this stage of our work, the LDC Group would like to comment not only on agenda item 4, "Review of the Provisions of Article 27.3(b)", but also, in light of the mandate set forth in paragraph 19 of the Doha Declaration, on items 5, 6 and 8. 79. The LDC Group would like to reaffirm its Members' keen interest in examining, within the context of the work of the TRIPS Council and in accordance with Article 27.3(b) of the TRIPS Agreement, the relationship between the TRIPS Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity, and the protection of traditional knowledge and folklore. 80. The use of LDC genetic resources, whether illegal or legal, is not covered by any multilateral regulatory framework. The disclosure of the origin of these resources remains crucial not only for their protection, but also for the sharing of the benefits arising from their use. 81. The review of the implementation of the TRIPS Agreement under Article 71.1 also remains a priority for LDCs. Paragraph 19 of the Doha Declaration in fact provides an additional mandate from our Ministers, establishing a work programme on this subject. There is no deadline for concluding this work programme. 82. LDCs are keen to protect traditional knowledge and traditional cultural expressions against misappropriation, misuse and unlawful exploitation, all of which is important in the context of the WTO mandate. 83. The LDC Group will examine this issue in terms of the real needs and constraints faced by its Members, with a view to submitting its contributions to the TRIPS Council very shortly.
