A seminar titled ‘Sri Lanka and GSP+: Ensuring sustainable supply chain’ kicked off recently in Colombo. It was organised by the Brussels based Foreign Trade Association. State Minister of International Trade Sujeewa Senasinghe briefed a distinguished international and local audience on the positive steps taken by the Government of Sri Lanka to reform the country, notably in strengthening transparency and the rule of law and the creation of a business and investment-friendly environment geared to benefit from the restoration for Sri Lanka of the European Union’s GSP+ facility.
