H Technical Cooperation
49. In regard to the technical cooperation activities of intergovernmental organizations including WIPO/WTO cooperation, the representative of Egypt, commenting on paragraph 3 of document IP/C/W/21, said that the Council's main objective should remain how to render Article 67 operational at the multilateral level; other technical cooperation activities, in particular those of intergovernmental organizations and technical cooperation in favour of countries in transition from a centrally-planned to a market, free-enterprise economy, should be addressed in a context different from Article 67, which was very clear in this respect. These concerns were shared by the representative of India.
