Costa Rica requested extension for SGP Plus
Costa Rica requested for the Special Stimulus System for Sustainable Development and Governance (SGP Plus) for the 2009-2001 period.
Thursday, October 30, 2008
Under this system, which expires in December of this year, Costa Rica continues exporting a significant number of national products the the EU under a preferential tariff system until the negotiations for the Association Agreement which are currently underway are completed.
The country will ask the EU to extend the special incentive arrangement for sustainable development and good governance, known as GSP+, which expires in 2012.
The European Commission announced that it will grant tariff free access to thousands of Costa Rican products starting next year and until 2011.
Exporters requested an explanation from the Government for the negligence that will probably exclude the country from the preferential tariffs system.
El Salvador can count on the General Preference System (SGP Plus), which allows it to export certain products to the European market tariff-free.
