angle-left ADVISORY: EU GSP+ SURVEY - 28 June 2022


Dear Partners in Export,

The International Trade Center (ITC), in collaboration with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), is currently implementing a study that aims to assess the Philippines’ utilization of the European Union’s Generalized Scheme of Preferences Plus (EU GSP+); and develop targeted policy responses to enable relevant export sectors from the Philippines to strengthen the utilization of preferences in the EU market. This study is being undertaken under the scope of the ASEAN Regional Integration Support – Philippines Trade-Related Technical Assistance (ARISE Plus Philippines) program, funded by the European Union (EU). 

As a part of the study, an online survey is being administered by the ITC, in collaboration with the DTI, to gather relevant information and insights from exporters in order to better understand the extent to which the Philippines has benefitted from the EU GSP+ scheme, the challenges faced by exporters in exporting to the EU and claiming tariff preferences, and how GSP+ utilization can further be strengthened to enhance trade with the EU.
