South Centre organizes informal meeting in advance of TRIPS Council

There is a new momentum for the conclusion of the Doha Round of negotiations. If negotiations restart, it is crucial that developing countries make progress on issues related to TRIPS Agreement where they are demandeurs and especially on the proposal for disclosure requirement. In this context, South Centre organized an informal meeting on 22 October to ensure that developing countries pose a coordinated stance on the issue. Over 25 delegates participated in this meeting.
