The forecasts that the EU may revise its GSP+ for Armenia are just a personal point of view, Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia Traian Hristea said on Wednesday when asked to comment on relevant reports.
He said that Armenia joined this program quite recently and as any mechanism, its participation will have its duration and will be monitored.
To remind, former President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan said in his last interview that the EU will probably revise the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP+) for Armenia, as EU ambassadors hint at that. Some problems will probably emerge also with the WTO and the coordinated customs duties. "This will lead to response measures regarding our products. How will this influence Armenia's economy and its long-term investment attractiveness is hard to assess," Kocharyan said.
