EU report on GSP+ inaccurate - SL Minister

By Kelum Bandara & Yohan Perera - Export Development and International Trade Minister Prof. G.L Peiris told Parliament yesterday that the government found the European Commission report on the GSP+ matter to be inaccurate and unacceptable in many respects.

Prof. Peiris told the House in a statement that the Commission had handed over a document titled ‘Report on the findings of the investigation with respect to the effective implementation of certain human rights conventions in Sri Lanka’ on October 19, to the Sri Lankan Ambassador in Brussels.

“The Commission has informed the Government that it will be prepared to entertain any observations which the government wishes to make on the contents of this report before November 6, 2009,” he said.
