Import Standards for GSP-Eligible Products
The Department of Commerce Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) will provide technical assistance to increase and diversify Georgias exports by developing the capacity of Georgian agricultural producers to take advantage of U.S. trade preference programs such as the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program, and to help such producers understand U.S. standards and regulatory requirements for food imports.
Participants will be able to apply the skills and knowledge gained from the workshops and consultations to increase Georgias capacity to export agricultural products to the United States and create sustainable growth in the agricultural sector.
During the week of April 19, 2010, CLDP will hold workshops, sector-specific meetings, and site visits in Tbilisi, Kutaisi and Batumi for relevant government officials, trade association representatives, and private sector producers on how to expand Georgias exports under the GSP program and how to satisfy U.S. import standards and regulations for agricultural products. The faculty for the program will include a representative from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
