The IPKat notes that the Slovenian Presidency is in favour of consensus-based solutions. He hopes that the Presidency will appreciate something that has often eluded its predecessors: consensus isn't something that happens overnight, particularly in fields of IP protection in which the interests of the various sides involved are in conflict with one another and where what is agreeable to one industrial sector may not be agreeable to another (in other words, for example, the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries may find their point of consensus as between IP owners, their competitors, industry regulators and consumers, but it might be a different point of consensus to that struck within the electronics, engineering or other industries).
