Ambassador Yonov Agah (Nigeria)
Estados Unidos de América
192. The representative of the United States thanked the delegations of Uganda and Sierra Leone for their submissions in connection with the Council's decision under 66.1 of the Agreement. Based upon an initial review, he thought that these needs evaluations were helpful in being cogent and a comprehensive articulation of what these Members considered to be their priority needs. He found them to be a useful basis for bilateral engagement, through his country's development agencies present in those countries, to evaluate additional assistance that could be provided. As many of the identified needs were relevant to the work being undertaken in other organizations, notably in WIPO, he encouraged Uganda and Sierra Leone to consider looking to those organizations as well. He encouraged other LDCs to follow suit.
