Zainalabedin stated that the GOB appreciated the USG offer of technical assistance, but asked that all discussion on this legislation be directed to the GCC Secretariat. He said that the Ministry of Industry and Commerce had not been particularly concerned with this issue because Bahrain already has strong IPR legislation and that the GOB would fully comply with its IPR obligations under the FTA regardless of whatever GCC legislation was adopted. ********************************************* ******** Visit Embassy Manama's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXX********************************************* ******** HENZEL
