Europe has appreciated the conditions created in Sri Lanka. The GSP plus concession will be extended for six more months.
The European Union has officially informed the Government that the GSP Plus concession granted for goods exported to Europe will be extended for six more months. Earlier the EU had decided to consider the extension after 15th of August. The European Union has said that this decision was made after considering the programme launched by the government to uplift the lives of the people in the North and East and several other factors. Under this decision, 3200 goods including apparels can be exported to European Union countries until February under the tax concessions.
