Great interest in revised draft.  Welcome the richness and scope that came from various regional groups. Aligns with G77/China and CARICOM.

Discussions are a democratic exercise and show that multilateralism is in good health. We have a capacity to find joint solutions to problems.  Happy with consensus on certain points which were diverging. Certain regional groups changed positions. Benefit sharing mechanism – art. 11 – did not always have consensus.  Still have work to do there with clarity. 

MGR sharing is of fundamental importance to us. We will support any regional groups that support this.  Still have a lot of work to cover.
