Ambassador W. Armstrong (New Zealand)
I Review of the application of the provisions of the Section on geographical indications under Article 24.2
57. The representative of Australia said that two different issues were being addressed in the discussions which should be dealt with separately. The first issue was the Article 24.2 review, which Members were currently undertaking, and which was far from being finalized, and the second issue was the preliminary work to be initiated in 1997 on issues relevant to the negotiations under Article 23.4. Her delegation fully supported the views expressed by New Zealand regarding, in particular, the report of the TRIPS Council to the Singapore Ministerial and also wished to echo the comments made by previous speakers regarding the outstanding work of the Council and the nature of priorities.
