New Zealand
The following communication, dated 25 October 2010, is being circulated at the request of the delegation of New Zealand. _______________ 1. The following submission updates the report submitted by New Zealand in October 2009 in accordance with paragraph 1 of the Decision of the Council for TRIPS of 19 February 2003 on Implementation of Article 66.2 of the TRIPS Agreement (IP/C/28), which provides that developed country Members submit annually reports on actions taken or planned in pursuance of their commitments under Article 66.2. 2. Article 66.2 of the TRIPS Agreement provides that "developed country Members shall provide incentives to enterprises and institutions in their territories for the purpose of promoting and encouraging technology transfer to least developed country Members in order to enable them to create a sound and viable technological base". 3. Technology transfer is interpreted in this report broadly to include training, education and "know-how", along with any capital component. Using a United Nations definition, we see four key modes of technology transfer: (i) physical objects or equipment; (ii) skills and human aspects of technology management and learning; (iii) designs and blueprints which constitute the document-embodied knowledge on information and technology; and (iv) production arrangement linkages within which technology is operated.
