The Delegation of the European Union to Sri Lanka and the Maldives says no list of conditions have been communicated to the Government of Sri Lanka in order to obtain the GSP plus trade concessions.
A Government delegation will visit the European Commission headquarters later this month for talks on retaining the key trade concessions. The discussions, foreseen in Brussels on the 20th and 21st of May will address issues highlighted in the European Commission’s final report on Sri Lanka’s eligibility for GSP Plus issued in October 2009, the EU office in Colombo said.
This latest round of discussions is part of the continuing dialogue between the parties on these issues.
"The Delegation of the European Union to the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka & the Maldives would like to underline that no list of conditions has been communicated to the Government. The Delegation emphasises that any review of the European Commissions recommendations on GSP Plus is not dependent on any single measure," the EU added.
