Mr. S. Harbinson (Hong Kong)
United States of America
B Implementation of Article 70.8
15. The representative of the United States, while appreciating the notifications that had already been made, pointed out that almost a full year had passed since the provisions in question had come into effect but that there were still a few countries that had not made the required notification. He looked forward to the moment when all notifications would have been made by those countries that did not provide patent protection for pharmaceutical products or agricultural chemicals.
