USTR Launches Review to Consider Reinstating Argentina to GSP
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has initiated a review to consider reinstating Argentina’s status as a beneficiary developing country under the Generalized System of Preferences. The U.S. suspended Argentina from GSP in 2012 for failing to enforce arbitral awards with two U.S. companies, but Argentina settled those awards in late 2013 and has therefore asked the U.S. to consider reinstating its GSP eligibility.
A public hearing on this review will be held Jan. 10 in Washington, D.C. Comments, pre-hearing briefs, and requests to appear at this hearing are due by Dec. 23, and post-hearing briefs are due by Jan. 24.
