May 20, Colombo: In response to many requests for information and queries received from its member companies regarding GSP+, the Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) of Ceylon Chamber of Commerce has taken the initiative to create an easy to use guide to check some key aspects of the trade concession.
This one-stop information page gives key EU information sites, which can help a company check if 1) their product/s are eligible for GSP Plus concessions and 2) If so, what the tariff advantage would be.
The page will be curated by EIU, and updated regularly with other relevant content, for example, updates on the terms of the GSP+ scheme from the European Commission, updates on the economic scenario in the EU and market conditions, etc.
Exporters can find out whether their products are eligible for GSP+ benefits by a two-step process.
