Ambassador Carlos Pérez del Castillo (Uruguay)
G.i Updated information on technical cooperation activities
28. The Chairperson recalled that, at the Council's meetings in February and May 1996, it was agreed that developed country Members would annually update information on their technical cooperation activities relevant to the implementation of the TRIPS Agreement. In the previous years, this updating was done in time for the Council's meeting in September. He suggested that this year the developed country Members update this information in time for the Council's meeting scheduled for October. In addition, he suggested that the Council invite the intergovernmental organizations observers to the Council to provide information on their technical cooperation activities, as they had done in previous years. Furthermore, the WTO Secretariat might provide information on its activities. This would enable the Council to focus on technical cooperation at its next meeting.
