Daw Theingi Ye Tun was also part of the Myanmar delegation that went to Europe in December 2018 to discuss the GSP/EBA with the EU. The GSP was the centrepiece of discussion and EuroCham stressed the importance of having a concrete action plan to maintain its status in the country. Furthermore, EuroCham also addressed current issues related to the tripartite forum between the Ministry of Labour, Trade Unions and Employers. EuroCham emphasised that ensuring a fair discussion between the three parties is crucial for the fate of the GSP though will not be the sole determining factor.
