Briefing: The revision on the Generalised System of Preferences
Posted on 10/10/2011
For the first time, the European Parliament will decide, in common with the Council, on the revision of the General System of Preferences.
Since 1971, the European Union has granted trade preferences to developing countries. As part of the EU’s external action the General System of Preferences is granted to all countries sharing common needs for development, as the EU Trade is also governed by the contribution to development.
