Compte rendu ‒ Conseil des ADPIC ‒ Afficher les détails de l'intervention/la déclaration

Ambassador C. Trevor Clarke (Barbados)
266. The representative of Argentina said that her delegation did not have any problems with the draft Annual Report, except for with the way section XIV, consisting of paragraph 17, was presented. In her view, section XIV incorrectly gave the impression that the topic was, like the other topics, a regular item of the agenda. She wondered whether the heading of section XIV could be changed into "Other Business", under which this topic of enforcement of intellectual property rights would be inserted. Furthermore, she did not believe that paragraph 17 gave a factual presentation of the status of the discussions on this topic. It should reflect the fact that there was no agreement as to whether the topic should be a permanent item of the agenda, as well as the views expressed by the two sides on this matter.
