34. The representative of Venezuela thanked the Secretariat for the information provided and expressed his Government's gratitude to the WTO and WIPO for all the assistance provided in the organization of the seminar on intellectual property, investment and competition rules, held in Caracas a month previously. Commenting on the statement by the representative of WIPO, he said that Venezuela had, at the beginning of 1999, presented to the Director General of WIPO a comprehensive plan and programme concerning the technical cooperation that it would need. In Caracas, a meeting had been organized where experts from the WTO and WIPO had met with members of the Venezuelan Congress, which had been very useful for the process of implementation of the necessary legislative reforms.
