44. The representatives of Egypt, Paraguay, India, Peru, the Philippines, Norway, New Zealand and Cuba were in favour of requesting the Secretariat to prepare an analytical summary of the information already presented, as mentioned in indent 3 of paragraph 7 of document IP/C/W/21. The representative of the United States was hesitant about the desirability of such analytical reports, as analysing the relative degree of assistance would be very difficult, at least in part because assistance was generally provided on a contractual basis and targeted to the specific needs of a specific country. The representatives of the European Communities, Australia and Canada wondered what the notion of "analytical" meant. The representative of the European Communities explained that, to the extent this notion referred to the evaluation of the success of a programme, such evaluation should be done bilaterally.
