122. For the sake of clarity, I thought I should respond to the important question raised by the delegation of Bangladesh concerning Article 66.2. As I understand it, this item would come up separately under "Other Business" in the context of planning for the continuing review of incentive measures notified under Article 66.2. As is customary, we are planning to convene a workshop on the margins of the next session of the Council so as to enable LDC Members in particular to review and raise questions about the notifications provided by developed country Members under this item. That would normally take the same format as in previous years but, of course, we will consult with the LDC Group in particular as the Members chiefly concerned on that process and on its agenda. Under item 15, the Council will take up the arrangements for the 12th Annual Review of the Implementation of Article 66.2.
