Members of the European Parliament Committee on International Trade says that the Sri Lankan Government needs to keep the country on the path to reform.

Members said the opportunity to address the remaining issues should not be missed, and highlighted the need to make further progress in implementing the international human rights conventions relevant to GSP+ and further improve labour conditions.

A delegation of six Members of the European Parliament Committee on International Trade is in Sri Lanka on a 3-day visit.

They arrived in the country yesterday (Apr. 04).

Their intention was to follow up on the country's commitments made in exchange for access to the European Union market.

The Generalised System of Preferences Plus is of key importance for Sri Lanka's economy.

The INTA delegation said that it was pleased to note that trade between the EU and Sri Lanka is on an upward trajectory following the entry into force of GSP+ last summer, making the EU Sri Lanka's largest trading partner.

The delegation, chaired by Jan Zahradil and composed of six INTA Members including the INTA Standing Rapporteur for South Asia, Sajjad Karim.

The visit also included discussions with civil society, trade unionists, and representatives of the ILO and the UN, as well as a field visit to the Export Processing Zone in Katunayake.
