10. The representative of Morocco said that it would be necessary to respect certain target dates so as to speed up the process. He agreed that the Special Session should use existing material and make progress. While he agreed that participants would have to show some flexibility in relation to deadlines, he held the view that this flexibility should benefit developing countries which had small delegations and had to cover negotiations in other negotiating bodies. Developing countries had great interest in relation to the establishment of a multilateral system. Perhaps their interests had not yet been clearly spelt out but they would become clearer when the issue of extension of protection of geographical indications for products other than wines and spirits would be discussed. He urged that developing countries' concerns be taken into account in the informal consultations and that these countries be kept informed of what was happening "in the corridors".
