Ambassador W. Armstrong (New Zealand)
G.iii.a Review of the application of the provisions of the section on geographical indications under Article 24.2
66. The representative of Canada shared the view expressed by other delegations that the matter was not ripe to be taken up in the Council at this time. Given the overlap between the work that might be needed under Article 24.2 and that under way in the context of the review of national implementing legislation, he believed that the appropriate procedure would be not to start a new process until an on-going one was finished and that sometime this Summer, if that work would appear to be close to conclusion, the matter might be taken up again, initially in informal consultations.
