    Correction it won't affect the government but it will affect the people

    That's right. These cuts are made because those Governments are in a bad way (unlike us).

    China would never give aid but loans with harsh terms.

    Hettiarachchi Tuesday, 16 April 2013 01:08 PM

    It is the same thing they said when EU withdrew GSP+. What has happened now is that garment factories are being closed and workers getting unemployed.

    dallas Tuesday, 16 April 2013 04:00 PM

    please check the number of factories closed before you talk, me too a victim
