Bangladesh will seek Generalised System of Preference (GSP)-plus facility from the European Union (EU) in the upcoming Joint Commission Meeting (JCM), as the country is set to graduate as a developing nation within a few years, officials said. On the other hand, the EU is likely to discuss issues like Bangladesh’s press freedom, extra-judicial killing, and some trade barriers between the two sides, they also said. Bangladesh and the EU are going to sit in the JCM, to be held at Economic Relations Division (ERD) in Dhaka on October 21. Before it, three sub-groups of the EU-Bangladesh JCM will sit on October 17 and 20 to formalise the agreed points for the final meeting. A delegation of the EU from the European Commission headquarters will visit Bangladesh for taking part in the JCM.
