Comptes rendus ‒ Session extraordinaire du Conseil des ADPIC ‒ Afficher les détails de l'intervention /la déclaration

Ambassador Eui-yong Chung (Korea, Republic of)
34. The representative of Chile agreed with the programme of work suggested by the Chairperson for the next meeting. This issue was an important one for Chile, requiring many details to be studied further. His delegation hoped that the final result would be simple, would facilitate trade rather than create barriers. As regards Australia's proposal for the compilation of national systems of protection of geographical indications for wines and spirits, the EC had pointed out that information was already available, including in the Trade Policy Review documents. However, his delegation did not know whether it was possible to check all the Trade Policy Review documents and to ascertain to what extent the information was correct. Therefore, it supported Australia's proposal. This question was very important for Chile and could not be excluded from the Special Session. He also found the United States' arguments very interesting.
