Sri Lanka Granted GSP Plus Status by European Commission

GSPThe European Commission, the legislative body of the European Union, has granted GSP Plus status to Sri Lanka, giving the country access to the EU market under the special scheme starting Friday. In January the EC had noted that it had received a GSP Plus request from Sri Lanka.

The EC said it examined the request from Sri Lanka and found that the country had met the conditions.“Sri Lanka should therefore be granted GSP+ from the date of entry into force of this regulation,” the EC said.
