Ambassador Eduardo Pérez Motta (Mexico)
R.i Report to the TNC
360. The Chairman said that that there did not appear to be agreement on any recommendation that the Council could make to the TNC. He wondered whether Members could agree on his proposal to prepare a brief factual report that simply described what the state of play was and indicated that consensus had not been reached in the relevant areas. The starting-point had to be such a factual report, but the question remained whether Members would wish to add anything to that. One option would be to refer to the two texts the Council had received on the extension of GI protection in two paragraphs of equal length. The report could also refer to the text on the disclosure requirement by some developing countries, again with a paragraph setting out the other views. In response to a question by India, he further clarified that the report would cover all outstanding implementation issues.
