390. Thank you very much for your kind words and congratulations again. I would like to thank all delegations for your trust and your cooperation during my term as Chair. It has been very interesting, very exciting, very challenging, but I think that you are a much nicer person than I am, and you will be treated more nicely, frankly. I am very grateful for the chance that I have had, and I would like to thank particularly the Secretariat, the very hard-working Secretariat that guided me through the year and supported my work. I am grateful also to the African Group who pushed me to do this, and who stood by me with the LDC Group, a very active LDC Group in the Council for TRIPS, and I am grateful to all Members.
391. I am particularly grateful to a few Members that have been very much supportive: Australia, New Zealand and there are several other countries. I thank you all, the UK, the United States, Brazil, and everyone for the support. I have enjoyed this, but all good things must come to an end, and I think I will enjoy the afterlife better, the after-TRIPS life. We have no further items on the agenda, we are coming to the end of this meeting, and this is the place for the customary farewells to those delegates who are leaving their posts. We are informed that Mr Assan Touray from the delegation of The Gambia is leaving us. He has been an active member of the Council and we would like to thank him for his contribution to the work of the WTO and the Council for TRIPS, in particular, and I wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.
