Chapter Summary

Developing countries wanted very clear and legally binding obligations to warrant technical cooperation for the developed States combined with a strong role for multinational institutions like the WTO or WIPO to put the cooperation on a multilateral level and to have more influence on the content of technical cooperation. Art. 67 of the TRIPS Agreement provides a set of rules on the procedure, content and purpose of technical cooperation in favour of developing countries. It facilitates the implementation of TRIPS in less-developed country Members. Art. 67 addresses how the developed country Members are to provide technical and financial cooperation. Thus, its addressees are exclusively WTO Members. Art. 67 enshrines a procedurally qualified duty of developed country Members to provide technical and financial cooperation upon request and with mutually agreed terms and conditions.
