G.ii WIPO-WTO Joint Initiative on Technical Cooperation
37. The representative of Paraguay, while also expressing his delegation's appreciation for the reports provided by the representatives of the WTO and WIPO, informed the Council that a WIPO mission was, at present, in his country to provide assistance in explaining to the National Congress the implications and the need for transforming the present legislation and to bring it in line with the TRIPS Agreement. He stressed the importance of the Agreement Between the WTO and WIPO concluded in 1995. He also wished to underline that the countries which had volunteered to have their TRIPS implementing legislation reviewed in the year 2000 would need even more technical assistance and that both Organizations should consider this when designing their cooperation programmes or schedules.
