189. Bangladesh delivers this statement on behalf of the LDCs. The LDC Group welcomes the reports under TRIPS Article 67 from the developed country Members and the reports of the Secretariat and other international organizations on the technical cooperation and capacity-building support to the developing countries and particularly the LDCs. These reports provide information on a wide range of programmes and activities customized for the beneficiary Members. These programmes are critically important for the LDCs. 190. We sincerely thank the developed country Members and the international organizations for their help and would like to encourage them to continue their valuable support for the developing countries and particularly the LDCs and the graduating LDCs. In this regard, we also request the WTO Secretariat to explore the possibility of organizing any regular annual event to discuss the implementation of Article 67 of the TRIPS Agreement. We believe that such an opportunity would help Members engage in informed dialogues through an interactive platform. Our group stands ready for further discussion on this issue with Members.
