Sri Lanka clinches US GSP

Sri Lanka has clinched the US GSP as the United States has decided not to change GSP benefits to Sri Lanka. “We warmly welcome United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk’s announcement on June 29 that the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) country practice review on worker rights in Sri Lanka has closed without any change to Sri Lanka’s GSP trade benefits.

This is also a confirmation of the strong assurance given to me by Michael Delaney, Assistant United States Trade Representative for South and Central Areas Affairs on June 13 in Colombo, said Rishad Bathiudeen, Minister of Industry of Commerce, acknowledging the announcement.

Delaney had earlier assured Minister Bathiudeen of a positive outcome from the US SP review. “As you know we have an outstanding petition filed by an American trade union concerning Sri Lanka workers’ rights which we have been discussing with the Government of Sri Lanka and stakeholders for a long time.
