GSP Reform: A Longer Term Strategy (with Special Reference to the ACP)

The European Commission has put forward broad proposals for a new Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) to cover the period from 2006 to 2015, but has issued a detailed draft Regulation - COM (2004) 699 final of 20 October, 2004 (CEC 2004b) - only for the period 1 July, 2005 to 31 December, 2008. Comment upon this draft Regulation needs to take account not only of changes that should be implemented immediately, but also of the longer term possibilities for evolving the GSP regime.
