Under its reformed GSP law, adopted on October 31, 2012, the EU has been offering zero-duty facility for products (except arms and ammunitions) manufactured in the LDCs for import to the 28-nation European market. But, this has not led to a drastic increase in the share of preferential import in the European market.
One reason for LDCs failing to significantly increase their exports to the EU is that the GSP facility is available only to LDC products with 30 per cent value addition.
Like Nepal, other LDCs have also requested the EU for extension of the facility in order to strengthen their fragile economy.
Under the GSP, Nepal mainly exports carpets, readymade garments and handicrafts to the EU, according to the Trade and Export Promotion Centre. (RKS)
