    Instead of GSP plus?. However, who can give a guarantee that ministers & relevant official would not "Rob?." This culture cannot change specially under the present regime. It has become a part & parcel from top to the bottom.

    It is their money - so they can give it to anyone they want. If we don't want, we should say no.
