Minutes - TRIPS Council Special Session - View details of the intervention/statement

Ambassador D. Mwape (Zambia)
B.ii Second sub-question
117. The representative of Canada said, in response to the comment by the delegation of the European Union, that she wished to refer Members to the minutes of the previous TRIPS Special Session, where her delegation had indicated that it was unable to see how the TN/C/W/52 proposal could be implemented in Canada's regime for lack of information. Furthermore, her delegation had indicated that the proposal contained in TN/C/W/52 unfortunately raised more questions than answers. Therefore, to state that Canada would not be obliged to change its regime was not accurate, as her delegation did not actually know what the proposal contained.
The Special Session took note of the statements made.
