Established by the Trade Act of 1974, the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) is the largest and oldest US trade preference program, providing opportunities for many of the world’s developing countries to use trade to grow their economies by eliminating duties on thousands of products when imported from the designated beneficiary countries and territories. As the global supply chain recalibrates in the wake of the China-US trade spat, concerned Hong Kong businesses shall take the GSP possibilities into account as they devise their supply chain strategy.
