A study done by the Ministry of Development Strategies & International Trade has estimated the loss of export revenue during the period in which Sri Lanka lost its GSP+ concessions to be between 150 to 250 billion rupees. GSP+ concession for Sri Lanka was lost in August 2010 and was reinstated in May 2017 by the European Union.
Prior to the loss of GSP+ concessions, Sri Lanka exported US$ 2.1 billion of apparel in 2009, ahead of Vietnam, Pakistan and Cambodia. After the loss of GSP+ concessions, despite the value of apparel exported from Sri Lanka to the EU increasing to US$ 2.4 billion in 2015, Vietnam, Pakistan and Cambodia were all ahead of Sri Lanka.
