THAILAND: Designated Exports Lose Duty-Free Access to US Market

As of 1 November this year, duty-free access to the US market has been rescinded for a wide range of the country’s exports. The decision to cancel their levy-free status, previously granted under the terms of the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) programme, followed a review that indicated that the items in question commanded a minimum 50% share of the US market, a status that was determined to be contrary to the interests of local manufacturers.

Among the affected items are washing machines, printers, camera tripods, orchids, certain dried fruits, various confectionery items and wood flooring material.
