The Sri Lankan business community is optimistic with Sri Lanka regaining GSP Plus. 
There is much expectation that this would boost the exports of Sri Lanka. As GSP Plus provides an importer in the EU zero duty benefit on importation of listed goods, Sri Lankan exporters must negotiate favourable export prices for their goods with the buyers. 
Almost 6200 eligible products under the GSP Plus scheme could be exported to the EU duty-free.
To provide insights on how exporters can gain valuable advantage and fully utilize this opportunity, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) – UK’s Sri Lanka Branch, has announced a knowledge sharing forum, titled ‘GSP Plus: Unlocking untapped potential’ in association with its knowledge partner, KPMG in Sri Lanka. The forum will be held on July 10th from 5.00 to 7.30 p.m.at Jetwing Hotel, Ward Place, Colombo 07.
Commenting on the event, Malraj B. Kiriella, CMI Sri Lanka President stated that “while gaining GSP Plus is undoubtedly a positive development for Sri Lanka’s private sector, it’s impact will be realized only if the private sector is geared to fully utilize this opportunity. Thus the objective of the event is to provide an overview of the opportunities to fully leverage the benefits of GSP Plus”
The event will feature a presentation on the topic by M.P. T. Cooray, Secretary General, Joint Apparel Association Forum and Suresh R. I. Perera, Principal- Tax & Regulatory, KPMG followed by an interactive panel discussion moderated by Reyaz Mihular – Managing Partner, KPMG.
The panel will include: Indira Malwatte, Chairperson  & Chief Executive EDB Sri Lanka, Dawn S. Austin Managing Director Nidro Supply (Pvt) Ltd, Channa Weerathunga General Manager, Global Fisheries Pvt Ltd Ranmal G. Jayasinghe, President, National Chamber of Exporters  Yohan Lawrence, Deputy Chairman, Joint Apparel Association Forum Reyaz Mihular, Managing Partner, KPMG (Moderator), and Suresh R. I. Perera, Principal- Tax & Regulatory, KPMG.
