The European Parliament today voted to defeat a resolution to deny granting the GSP+ tariff concession to Sri Lanka.

Deputy Minister Dr Harsha de Silva said that Sri Lanka won the vote in Brussels after 436 MEPs voted against, 119 voted in favor and 22 abstained for the motion to deny GSP plus for Sri Lanka.

Two EU member groups presented the resolution demanding not to restore GSP+ to Sri Lanka alleging the country has not fulfilled its responsibilities towards human rights.
