Agree with G77/China.

Despite efforts, we are aware there are limitations and this has become a hindrance.  This aggravates outstanding issues.  We need IGC5.

Underscore forthcoming instrument BBNJ should establish a balance of interests of all states.  MGRs – scope in agreement, right to fish in BBNJ.  Eliminate uncertainties / gray areas on activities.  Set of regulations or standards for EIA.  EIA regulations should only be imposed in ABNJ – not in waters of coastal states. EIA framework – 206 of UNCLOS.  MPA should consider interests of adjacent coastal states to create a balanced regime.

Will work with other parties to finalize BBNJ.
