TGA Opposes Removal of GSP Benefits for Indonesia and Thailand
On November 29, TGA testified at a second hearing reviewing benefits for Indonesia and Thailand under the U.S. Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program. Under GSP, U.S. travel goods imports from Indonesia, Thailand, and many other developing countries (Cambodia, India, Myanmar, etc.) enter the U.S. duty-free. In its testimony, TGA strongly opposed the removal of GSP benefits for U.S. travel goods imports from Indonesia and Thailand. This second review of the two countries was spurred by concerns over intellectual property rights (IPR) in Indonesia and labor rights in Thailand.
