The Government of Pakistan needs to negotiate for the new Generalized Scheme of Preferences (GSP+) package with the trade divisions of the European Commission, said Dr. Cyril Nunn, German Ambassador to Pakistan.
 
Speaking at an interactive session on German-Pakistan relations, the ambassador said the allotment of GSP+ status to Pakistan will be mainly a political decision since it has to go through 27 national parliaments and the European Parliament and there is no shortcut to achieve the status.
 
He said Germany is not among the countries negotiating with Pakistan on GSP+ status on behalf of the EU, but it would use its influence to negotiate a package that suits the two parties, he added.
 
Talking about the trade between Pakistan and Germany last year, he said that there was a decline in Pakistan textile exporters to EU countries.
 
The new GSP+ ensures exporters from developing countries pay lower duties on some or all products exported to the EU market. The objectives of the EU’s new GSP are to provide GSP+ as an incentive to good governance and sustainable development as well as to make the scheme more transparent, stable and predictable.
 
The present GSP package allows 176 developing countries and territories to pay lower import duty on export of certain products to the EU. Whereas the GSP+, to be effective from January 1, 2014, would grant only 89 countries with tariff preferences on imports, which includes 49 least developed countries under Everything-but-Arms (EBA) beneficiaries and 40 low income and lower middle income countries as classified by the World Bank.
