COMMITTEE ON DEVELOPMENT AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
Closing statement (as delivered in writing)
Madam Vice-Chair, The EU and its Member States would like to congratulate you and the Chair on your guidance of this Committee. We would also like to extend our thanks to the Secretariat for their hard work in preparation for this Committee as well as for their efforts during the week.
Let me start by saying that I am honoured and proud to pay this first visit here. We were together in the headquarters in Rome few months ago. And we are here exactly one year after we saw the tragic loss of lives in this very same sea - it was on the 18 April last year.
