212. Under this agenda item, Bangladesh delivers this statement on behalf of the LDC Group. 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. 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. 213. We sincerely thank the developed country Members and the international organizations for their help and request to continue their valuable support for the developing countries and the LDCs including the graduating LDCs. In this regard, we also request delegations to explore the possibility of organizing an annual event, similar to TRIPS 66.2 workshop, to discuss the implementation of Article 67 of the TRIPS Agreement. We believe that the Secretariat can extend its support and such an opportunity will also help Members engage in informed dialogues. The LDC Group stands ready for further discussion on this issue with Members.
