  • South Asia is one of the world’s premier garment export hub accounting for 12% of global exports and manufacturing 80% of the world’s brands.
  • South Asian industry can benefit from the intra-regional trade brought about by regional cumulation. Sri Lanka plays a pivotal role for intraregional integration due to its politically neutral status in the South Asian region, creating a positive business environment for entrepreneurs from Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh to meet and do business together. Thus making Sri Lanka the “gateway to the huge South Asian market”.
  • India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka & Pakistan together exported garments worth US$ 49 billion in 2014-15 and are expected to reach US$ 84 billion by 2020.
  • South Asia’s greatest opportunity also lies in the fact that it has the largest youth population (487 million) in the world. With increasing disposable incomes, they are driving higher apparel sales year after year in the domestic markets, which in turn is also accelerating intra-regional trade.

The regaining of GSP Plus would see the Sri Lankan apparel industry surpass the US$ 5 billion mark for exports for the first time in 2017-18.

EU is Sri Lanka’s biggest export market accounting for nearly one-third of Sri Lanka’s global exports and GSP Plus will provide Sri Lankan exporters duty free access to the EU market with duties cut from 9.6% to 0%.

In preparation for Brexit as well as to take full advantage of GSP Plus, Sri Lankan apparel makers and exporters have petitioned the EU to grant permission to source high-quality fabrics from ASEAN and export the goods produced using such under the GSP Plus scheme.

Logistically, Sri Lanka is situated at a nerve centre for shipping with 24% of the world container traffic from East to West moving though the Colombo port area thus creating stronger intra-regional connects.
