41. In regard to the question of the systematic provision of information (document IP/C/W/21, paragraphs 5-7), the representatives of Egypt, Paraguay, India, the Philippines, the European Communities, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Cuba were in favour of seeking periodic updating of information from developed country Members on their technical cooperation activities, as mentioned in paragraph 7 of document IP/C/W/21. Most of these delegations were of the view that such updating should be done annually. The representative of Japan said that his delegation was willing to update periodically its information if so required. The representative of Norway wished that also developing country Members would provide information on their needs in order to allow the donors of assistance to evaluate what kind of projects would be useful.
