Does GSP Generate Security and Prosperity for the US?




Two sets of expert panelists explored how Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) impacts U.S. stakeholders and the developing world. GSP, which provides the foundation for all U.S. trade preference programs, is set to expire in December, and Congress is currently considering its renewal. They discussed whether the program should be expanded or updated, and considered its prospects for a seamless renewal.
